An honest, fair and quite voyeuristic look into avatars and the real-life humans who control them in Second Life.
A disturbing but nonjudgmental study of online addiction and the lure of manufactured identities.
At once a disturbing vision of escape, a cautious portrait of liberation, and an exploration of authenticity and artificiality.
