Fanie Pelletier — Canada — 2022 — 84'
Through moments captured in the lives of three groups of girls, images gleaned from the web and live streams of girls around the world, Bloom delves into the world of today’s teenage girls. We delicately observe their fascination with social media and their tortuous identity construction through self-representation. This immersion reveals a hyper-connected but lonely generation inhabited by great lucidity, an inner struggle with self- image obsession, and a need for self-affirmation in the face of a deep sense of alienation.
