Produced by Xie Chenglin, a student at the Central Academy of Fine Arts in China, the video shows people going about with their heads down, obsessed with what’s happening on their smartphone instead of what’s happening in the world around them. No one really behaves this extreme (but selfies taken with disasters as the background have been a worrying trend recently). This short is an over-the-top, satirical video — emphasizing the severity of the problem — without chastising the viewer, so the message actually gets through.
