Storyline

The story of Chris Crocker, an uncanny young video blogger from a small town in Tennessee. Chris is part of the first wave of young people developing into adulthood under constant self-surveillance. At 270 million video hits to date, Crocker is patient zero. He is the product of a hyper social Internet experience offering a virtual ticket out of town. Chris Crocker is still one of the most controversial Internet video personalities to come out of the short history of this genre. This documentary is an intimate look at a complex astute and surprisingly media savvy young video blogger, regarded by millions as the Internet's first rebel folk hero. Written by Anonymous

provocative portrayal of media culture
22 September 2012 | by See all my reviews

This is a film about what it means to live in an essentially culture; it is about the conditions which enable us to express our original narcissism, project it into the world, re-create it over and over again, in ourselves, and through other people. It is about how, at the extreme lengths of it, we can find some common ground. Told through a complex narrative of the development of you-tube as a social media platform, of Chris Crokker's personal relationship to that platform, and of Britney Spears identity within that platform - how it was built up, and taken down, by those voyeurs it sustains - Me @ The Zoo, portrays the grotesque extreme of our exhibition existences and, through its surreal quality, shows the beauty of being able to return to the common humanity at the core of each of us. A must see for anyone who watches reality TV.
