age anxiety that something better is happening somewhere else. aggravated by social media.
FoMO, mofos! (Fear of Missing Out, motherf***ers!) Created by Mary Pearson
Enter here and now. A woman, and a mystery: What happened?
How did we get here? How do we get down from here? Flashing back through another time, another place, a woman is lost in a digital age state of being. All eyes gaze upon her, their insatiable desire is to invade and capture her privacy.
She metamorphoses into a series of different animal totems: a peacock,
a sheep, and a moth. She is at once the killer and the sacrificed, powerful goddess and guru who commands space and time itself. The hallucination fades. She is naked, cast out and ashamed, fighting invisible ghosts from the past. She is stuck, an outcast with no memory and no future.
FoMO, mofos! Is a kaleidoscopic meditation passing through the films Blow-up and Mullholland Drive and the songs of Robert Wyatt, Kraftwerk and John Lennon; a modern myth, cautionary tale, and cinematic visual feast.
