Born in a land of drug cartels and carnival queens, Mickey found in social media a platform where she can explore her sexual identity and deal with the deep homophobia of her environment. Through Mickey’s and Betzabé complicity, they reconstruct her past memories using the collective data in social media. Is it possible to construct a film through the use of the collective memories on Google?
#Mickey is a participant of the 2019 (Egg)celerator Lab.
