A cautionary tale about sex, technology, and public shaming set in a Nicaraguan town, Florence Jaugey’s The Naked Screen is a thought-provoking portrait of young people growing up in an increasingly complicated digital age. Alex and Esperanza are college sweethearts, madly in love and unable to keep their hands off each other. When Alex meets scholarship student Octavio, the two form a quick friendship, with Octavio becoming increasingly obsessed with Alex’s wealthy lifestyle. In the heat of passion, Alex and Esperanza record an intimate video, and their worst nightmare comes true when they learn Octavio has uploaded it to the internet. From that moment on, nothing will be the same for either one of them.
“This cautionary tale from filmmaker Florence Jaugey is a searing portrait of love in the digital age.” —AFI Silver Spring
