In a near-future saturated by technology, Mars introduces Jay to a world outside their company’s confines. “808,” directed by Athina Wilson, is a gritty dystopian vision (shot on 16mm) reckoning with a world lacking in empathy and human touch. Mars is new to the job, a content moderator in a depressing office where her job is to watch potentially disturbing videos all day and then answer “yes” or “no.” This puts her and everyone else who works there in a vulnerable state of mind, prone to outbursts of violence and dismay. That’s where she meets Jay, a guarded young man who’s become numb to the job and to the larger outside world. Mars still has a glimmer of hope and sparks to Jay, attempting to bring some light into his life. Wilson’s film is a raw but imaginative glimpse into a dark future (not so different than the present), delivered with scrappy world building and cautious chemistry between its two leads, Annika Wagar and Jordan Obzarzanek.
