    Are You Really My Friend? The movie.

    Wednesday June 14, 2017 / 6 – 7:30 pm

    In 2011, photographer Tanja Alexia Hollander set out to differentiate the real from the virtual by photographing all 626 of her Facebook friends and exploring the meaning of friendship in the era of social media. Over the course of 5 years, she traveled around the country and around the world, meeting with and photographing her friends in their homes, discovering the ways in which friendship is defined. Along with the formal portraits she produced during her travels across the globe, Hollander shot more than 100,000 digital images and video files on a series of iPhones and “point and shoot” cameras, documenting her travels and experiences.

    Las Vegas filmmaker and 2016 Nevada Woman Filmmaker of the Year, Robin Greenspun convinced Hollander to allow her to direct and produce a film documenting the project and her experiences during her travels. Hollander trusted Greenspun with her hard drives containing those 100,000 images and made the movie which is now part of Hollander’s exhibition, Are You Really My Friend? on display at the Massachusetts Museum of Contemporary Art (MASS MoCA).

    Join Greenspun and Hollander for a screening of the film Are You Really My Friend? followed by a panel discussion exploring friendship, photography and social media.
