Making the film – and reimagining his own life – was the opportunity he needed to break away from the devices that were stealing attention to the present. His film “Get Back” showcases the story of a young couple trying to work out life and love in the midst of an increasingly disconnected digital world.

He made this film to explore the way humans connect in an era when they are more “connected” than ever.
