In a world where data is our only currency, a career-driven young mother is forced to fight for her way of life when a global tech giant comes to claim a debt.

 

A.R.P.U. – which stands for ‘average revenue per user’ – is a short dystopian film inspired by the Netflix documentary ‘The Great Hack’ and the Cambridge Analytica scandal. The film explores our relationship with our online data, and what could happen when we give it away so freely.

The Eyes of Marge

A self-hating social worker traumatised by his sister’s death from domestic abuse, is plagued by phone calls from an unknown woman looking for her dead sister.

In a grimy, gritty world where the services put in place to protect us are no longer enough, a male social worker becomes subject to intrusive phone calls from an unknown woman. As this evolves into a haunting and his fear grows, the supernatural is used to reflect the very real fears felt by women in our own world every day. 

A winner of their 2022 Film Fund, the film was supported by Other Brother Studios with post production by UNIT.  It will screen as part of Soho LIFF 2024.
