Victoria Mapplebeck found her old Nokia phone and charged it up to see what data it contained. There were 100 texts from a man she dated for some time. Those, along with a Christmas card, two emails, a set of baby pajamas, and a paternity test were all she had left of her son's father. So she made a short film with the texts piecing the story together.
“It felt like a digital hit and run,” Mapplebeck said. “I began this project with a personal story, but perhaps it also explores a universal story—one in which we increasingly expect more from technology and less from each other.”Read more about the film at The Atlantic.
