When depressed and withdrawn Catharine meets a secretive boy online, she begins to come out of her shell. But is he a suitor or a stalker, a friend or foe? The mystery of his existence fuels obsession, denial and deceit, sending her to the point of no return. The film was inspired by the writer-director's own experience parenting his teenage daughter in the world of cyberspace.
"@urFRENZ," writer-director Jeff Phillips' is the first narrative feature film to address the growing crisis of cyberbullying, the number one hot button issue between parents and teens today. The story about the lives of teens, their families and the lure and danger of social networking sites, @urFRENZ explores the themes of communication, the public and private self, obsession, and how we use technology to manipulate identity. The title (pronounced "at your friends") is derived from the name of the social networking site that connects all of the characters.
In an accompanying journal, Jeff Phillips discusses the genesis of the idea for the film and the lengthy process it took to write and bring it to the screen. @urFRENZ: the shooting script also includes his production notes written exclusively for this edition, and a chapter on the film's festival history up to its theatrical release.
With an introduction by Sean MacNamara, director of "Soul Surfer."
