Possessed veers between hard-edge documentary and dreamscape, to launch its complaint about the absorbing world of the smartphone. The millennial protagonist (Olivia Lonsdale) discovers a forgotten past among post-communist remains, and recounts childhood memories looking for new collectivism and empathy. Political theorists Alex Williams and Nick Srnicek provide analytical interruptions.
Music performed, recorded and produced by Laurel Halo.
