Techologically Ill wins Hugh Brody Visual Anthropology Prize 2019

Noemie Degiorgis’ transformative short documentary, Technologically Ill, won the Hugh Brody Visual Anthropology Prize at this year’s visual anthropology screening, Resolutionaries.

 

‘In today’s reality we find ourselves so connected yet more emotionally disconnected than ever. Technologically Ill explores this paradoxical idea. In the new geological epoch of the Anthropocene or the Age of Humans, we notice the omnipresence of technologies around us. We do not however talk much about the impact these devices have on our well-being and more specifically on mental health issues. This film focuses on two persons who have completely different use of technologies which enabled me to create a discussion and contrast between them and their relationship to technology and more specifically their smartphones.’
