ADDICTIONS / Giovanni Bucci

“Addictions” is one of the movies in the Official Selection of ÉCU 2012. The video is about addictions, mainly to technology, but it’s open to various interpretations. Years ago the idea behind technology was to give people more free time from work and give us a better life. So nowadays, with the possibility for the majority of people to have access to electronics and hi tech, is it true that we have more spare time and a better quality of life? Or have we become addicted to the technology that surrounds us everyday and it has suck us into it? But humans get addicted really easily to a lot of things in life and this video is also a metaphor about addictions in general, about being manipulated without even realizing it or without reacting.
