Henry has invented an app that will allow his family and loved ones to be together, always. But in the development process there are a few unforeseen glitches that no one could foresee.
"Hegedus' film EMMI depicts a terrifying technological reality. One man's obsession for emotional connectivity becomes his potential undoing. A tense social commentary that holds a mirror to contemporary society's addiction to the consumption of images, memories and communication. "
BEN HACKWORTH (DIRECTOR OF "CELESTE")
“Your film is beautifully executed. I loved the way you shot it. The formalism of looking at the world through the frame of the smartphone is a fantastic idea, and really keeps us boxed in with the character's perspective. The scenes of Henry driving, while looking at his phone, filled me with concern and anxiety. Congratulations on a great film!”
MICHAEL CRAFT (DIRECTOR OF "STORAGE")
“From the outset I was excited by the concept of the film “EMMI”. To try and capture the challenges set by a technological world in today's attitudes to parenting and being "plugged in' is a daunting task, however, it is one that this film does a great job of capturing. To work as a creative with such a group of open and professional artists is truly rewarding as I'm sure the end product proves. These, I believe, are the stories we need to tell and I am privileged to be a small part of this one.”
