IN REAL LIFE

Journeying through In Real Life’s otherworldly hued, colour shifting scenes, the film probes the themes of agency, a culture of sublimated violence and powerlessness in its topical social inquiry. A sense of precarity reigns when the protagonist (played by Arvida Byström) stumbles upon a YouTube instructional video featuring a woman breaking free of zip ties restraining her wrists.
