MET MES

MY ONLY IDOL IS REALITY by Martine Syms. 2007. 7 min.

An abstracted trip into MTV’s The Real World.

MET MES by Sam de Jong. 2022. 78 min.

In a supersaturated, pastel-tinted world, a TV show host sets out to make "a warm, endearing portrait of society" on her 90s VHS camcorder and ends up framing an innocent kid for armed robbery. Met Mes is a synthetic satire that points to broken police systems, performative morality, and the consequences of not being believed. North American premiere.

Post-screening Q&A with director Sam de Jong.

Thanks to Lucrecia Roa and Video Data Bank.
