Popcorn Culture - Review: The Social Dilemma
In a year that has seen most of us turn to social media for connection and entertainment, The Social Dilemma made quite a (chilling) splash. The docudrama, directed by Jeff Orlowski, looks at the rise of social media and exposes the damage it has caused to society - including the exploitation of users for financial gain, enabling increased surveillance, its impact on mental health, its use in politics, and the rampant spreading of fake news and conspiracy theories. We review the film and discuss whether its changed the way we see and engage with social media.
