What is their why?

“I have often used technology in various forms to both escape and explore various dimensions of my real life and identity. I think a lot of people have, especially in this past year. A large aspect of this short film deals with analyzing the ways in which technology can be both helpful and harmful in terms of understanding ourselves and connecting with others.”

Maggie Brennan is a cartoonist, animator, and musician. Her animations have been screened by SXSW, SIFF, Maryland Film Festival, NoBudge, GIPHY, and more. Her comics have been published by The New Yorker, The Fader, Inverse, and more.
