Hoax_CanularMonday, November 3, 2014
HOAX_CANULAR is a found-footage film made entirely from YouTube videos of teenagers anticipating the end of the world. The videos act as a coping mechanism for kids imagining the tools and skills they will need to survive it, but leaves the rest of us wondering about fear, social media and how both share our understanding of the world around us.
