Swiped: hooking up in the digital edge
United States of America, 2018
Duration: 82 min
Language: English
Subtitles: Russian

Forty million Americans meet online, and people between the ages of 18 and 30 spend up to ten hours a week on dating apps. In order to understand the success of Tinder, the creators of the film paid some visits to some research offices, people's bedrooms and crazy student parties. In the film, the academic discourse about the crisis of monogamy is interspersed with some unsophisticated girlish thoughts like “guys only want one thing”. Dating apps gave us the opportunity to meet people whom we would never have met in ordinary life, but at the same time, they caused us a lot of doubts. Does Tinder stimulate the objectification of women? How often does the scrolling through photos turn into an addiction? When do we stop the endless search for better options to finally choose someone? And, finally, why do men love to put photos where they hold giant fish on their profiles? The heroes of the film talk openly about self-doubt when they see other people's ideal images, their failed dates and foolish text messages. The decision-making fatigue from having too much choice is also discussed here. There will be no conclusions, but one thing is clear - our sexual and romantic rituals change under the pressure of technology, and we just have to accept that.
