DIGITAL WORLD cover image
Digital World is extremely compelling. It tells an interesting and incredible story with characters that carefully carry the theme. The animation is minimal and that only contributes to the story.

The story is about a person trying to find human connection in a screen-caught world.

I like the storyline. It is told well and extremely intriguing. The 2D animation features black and white line drawings that are animated. One thing that is cleverly executed is how the animator shows that someone is on their screen by depicting a moving block of blue over their eyes. One song plays throughout the film, "Mad World," by Tears for Fears. I like this song, because it fits the theme of the film really well. I am concerned about whether or not the filmmaker has obtained proper rights to use this music.

The main character tries to make human connection. This is a non-narrative film with music helping drive the action. The music is well-selected and definitely sets the mood and pace of the film.

The message of this film is that human connection is important, more so than the screens we use. My favorite part is the scene where the main character walks into a library and finds everyone using a screen. This really drives the message home.

I give Digital World 5 out of 5 stars and recommend it for ages 8 to 18, plus adults. Reviewed by Sandrine A. and Julie S., KIDS FIRST! Film Critic and KIDS FIRST! Juror

Dependence of technology and smart phone have alienated children. We are more in virtual world, Hangouts, chat, zoom, video conferencing and mobile phones games. This Virtual world has gone more viral during COVID. I am a middle schooler and I want to grow up like a normal child, play with my friends in playground vs Xbox and go to beach to play with sand vs selfies and Instagram. Will kids of my generation get back to normalcy - let's wait to find out!
