Run Time: 80 minutes
PRESSPAUSEPLAY examines the digital revolution currently transforming our concept of art and culture. With the knowledgeable input of several well-known artists and authors of today, this documentary opens a discourse about the positive and negative effects technology has had on the industries of music, film, photography, and writing. As the tools to create become more affordable and easier to use, a democratization of art has evolved – essentially enabling anyone to be an artist, a musician, a filmmaker. Some believe that the digital age has revolutionized art for the better and that this is the most fertile time for artists. With the invention of the Internet and the explosion of social media, we are now witnessing more art than ever before. But with the democratization of a culture comes the danger of mediocrity and the threat of confusing the artist with the audience. It's becoming increasingly harder for true artists to break through all the noise and there's a chance that real talent will be lost along the way. Featuring a powerful myriad of images, sounds, and icons, PRESSPAUSEPLAY is an awesomely relevant film you won't want to miss. –M.M.
