InContact examines intimacy in our universal state of voyeurism, while evoking an age of lost romance and melodrama. Shot in Williamsburg, Brooklyn, the narrative follows two women with vastly different personalities caught in a love triangle that is constantly streamed through a live video feed on a social media platform called InContact. The film explores the ever-growing blurring of the lines between spectatorship and exhibitionism in our everyday lives, and what happens when the user is both a viewer and a performer. Restricted to a variety of unconventional filming techniques including cell phone cameras, security camera footage, and the fictitious platform InContact, the film offers the audience an unflinching look at what happens when our online personas begin to seep into our physical lives.
