With the development of technology, nowadays we all have unlimited access to a set of information that past generations never had. It is not really a privilege; far from it. Whether we want to or not, we are somehow “forced to consume it” even without realizing it. Whether we are an adult, an elderly person, a child, or a college student, as is my case. All we need is access to the internet and a device. If, on the one hand, it is thanks to this technological advance that we have arrived where we are, with all the benefits it has brought us; on the other hand, the reverse can sometimes be very catastrophic. There are countless negative and harmful consequences of this technological development. In this film, one looks directly towards the trivialization of violence. My video portrays the content we see every day, from morning to night, on television, the Internet or any kind of media. At least in the first part. In a second phase, it portrays what would happen if the dead could speak.
