Me, Myselfie and I

John is falling behind at school, ignoring his mates and neglecting his girlfriend - all because he's become obsessed with maintaining his online persona. He spends so much time on his phone, he eventually becomes trapped inside it. Literally.

A re-telling of the Greek myth of Narcissus for the social media age that can be described as Big meets Black Mirror.

A film by Alastair Collinson.

Great film being shown in schools to alert pupils to dangers of being absorbed by social media (tweets this Head Master!).
