The phenomenon of increasing Smartphone Addicts can be attributed to today’s cutting-edge technology. Staring at the Smart phone or I-pad all the time and focusing on a small corner of life instead of exploring the vast expanse of life, people are gradually alienating themselves from the richness, the depth and extraordinary loveliness of life. This microfilm, Life of Smartphone Addicts, with its satirical and humorous style, serves to depict the current social situation and give people a chance to be introspective.
Written and Directed by Xie Chenglin
