Synopsis

In this satirical review of our times, Suzi doll is an ego-warrior. An online avatar marching to the algorithms of social media. She is lit by temporary outrage. A trending indignation. A passion that is fashion. A politics of the popular. She copies and pastes and forwards blame. Sometimes uplifting, sometimes bandwagon bullying. Her activism is abstract. Her help is hypothetical. We know many girls like Suzi, and many times we are her—vacuous virtual voices, echoing injustices.
