Linda Yellen's upcoming film, Fluidity, explores how likes, impressions, and virtual “connections” threaten the very notion of personal relationships and human intimacy. The film is currently in post-production, but Yellen shared a selection of exclusive images from the film for a preview.
At the story’s core is Matt (Nico Tortorella), a successful fashion photographer with a troubled past. He crosses paths with Lilly (Isabella Farrell), a grad student supporting herself by performing online sex. Their lives converge with other millennials, crashing into each other in and out of bed.
“I did over a hundred interviews with millennials,” Yellen explains, “and I was touched by what they’re dealing with today. We all went through exploration in our twenties, but in the past, we had the benefit of privacy. These kids are so much more exposed, so easily tracked through the many social media platforms they use. As they spoke about their lives, I got more of a sense of isolation than connection. I’m hoping Fluidity will serve as a window into that world.”
Yellen focused on using a diverse cast to tell this story. Included? Nico Tortorella, Tommy Dorfman, Isabella Farrell, Miles McMillan, Rain Dove, James Chen, Leyna Bloom, and more.
