Synopsis
Whitney is a rising star of the US gymnastics scene, who has a sizeable following on YouTube. Among them is Yara, who lives in Germany and is one of her biggest fans.
Two teenage girls live in different continents but are connected by their screens. Whitney Bjerken has a million YouTube subscribers; she creates challenges and posts updates on her training. Yara idolizes Whitney and follows her every move. As time progresses, Whitney starts looking for other sources of content outside gymnastics. Yara discovers a new side to her personality, which develops in tandem with Whitney’s ever-expanding online activity. Joya Thome’s cautionary film about our increasing attachment to social media reflects on the limits of what we can – or should – share online. [29 Sheffield DocFest]
