This program starts with a screening of We Need to Talk About the #Vaccine which explores the story of a content creator who tiptoes between political lines while creating viral videos to engage and enrage his audience.

This film will be followed by Shalini Kantayya's documentary, TikTok, Boom. which dissects one of the most influential platforms of the contemporary social media landscape, TikTok. This film examines the algorithmic, socio-political, economic, and cultural influences and impact of the history-making app.

Stay back after the film for a Talkback with Taha Arshad and Dena Anwar. Visit rpff.ca/2022 for more information.
