Who says booze and social media don’t mix?
Cinema Speakeasy is thrilled to present a very drunk-tweet friendly screening of the dynamic new German movie Pixelschatten – a film The Cinematic Katzenjammer called “A near-perfect examination of real lives through an actual first-hand perspective”.
Our presentation partner on this screening is The Film Talk, the award-winning show of cinema reviews and interviews with Jett Loe and Gareth Higgins.
At 8:00pm, join us to raise a bottle to our brave new public-private lives. Twitpic and Facebook updates are not only encouraged but required in our first ever #TwitterToast: @cinemaspeakeasy @ourlifeisonline
Then, at 8:30 (ish), we will screen Pixelschatten.
Pixel (Ben Gageik) is a 22-year-old small-town blogger: Everyone can read about him and his friends online. His blog “Pixelschatten” used to be the hippest thing in town, but now the local fame has faded away. His friends go to college, have new friends and interests, and his girlfriend Suse (Zora Klostermann) is irritated by the private issues revealed on the blog. When Pixel realizes that everyone but him is moving on, he changes all their lives with just one post…
Pixelschatten is a unique cinematic experience, a quirky-melancholic, yet warm and funny portrait of the Generation Internet, mixing the first-person point of view aesthetics of “Enter The Void” with the zeitgeist of “The Social Network”. But this time it’s not about the greedy entrepreneurs behind a moneymaking machine, it’s about the people that spend their everyday life online. It’s about you. And the spoilers for your life.
