Sara The Dancer

A Film by Tim Ellrich

Synopsis

Sara is a Google Street View Camera and photographs the streets from the top of a Car. But when she listens to the music of driver Larry for the first time, something starts to shake in her. Deeply unsettled by this behavior, she searches for help at the common
Google Search. Google instead, just wants the best for their users and strengthens her
desire. Quickly, this leads to an existential conflict with her actual camera use.
