Reconstructing Reality

A Film by Alice Wong

Synopsis

Reconstructing Reality is an 11-min film about how information shapes our minds and perception of reality. I investigated how different ways of storytelling contribute to our constantly changing perception of reality. The red thread is based on a personal story. It is edited with found footage, a collage of different ‘voices’ captivates the viewer to see how reality is constructed and reconstructed time after time. Storytelling can create a reality, that engages audiences to feel urgency, a sense of threat or justice, or simply the need to buy something. Life is composed of stories and a ‘real story’ is oxymoron.
