The dangers of Snapchat, sexting, and selfies are all-around us. Every day someone’s getting arrested or outed thanks to leaving their digital trace somewhere, so it’s no surprise that sharing incriminating photos can have consequences. But the new short film, SELFIE, makes the aftermath just a little scarier.

SELFIE is a companion piece to director Ben A. William’s other short, called SLR. SLR focuses on the other side “selfies,” meaning the person looking at them. More specifically, it’s about someone obsessed with voyeur pornography.
