[Fantasia] Swipe Up, Vivian! review: The future of dating

Whatever happened to A/S/L?

Social media and dating are an easy target for science fiction. The genre has been touching on the subject for decadesSwipe Up, Vivian! is a short film screening at the Fantasia Film Festival that gives a glimpse into a possible future. It also touches on things that are true today.

Vivian lives in an undisclosed time in the future. Comments made by characters and the technology nonchalantly clue the audience that things have changed dramatically. One thing that is similar to today is the how some people are content to stay at home with their technology. Vivian is one of those who rely on apps instead of leaving her apartment.

While Swipe Up, Vivian! boasts great visuals, the short is more about the human condition. The story focuses on Vivian’s life. In the process it also is making a comment about modern society. The film is an emotional look at trying to connect and find self worth in an increasingly technological age.
