The Screen Guide

In 2012, filmmaker and comedian Mike Nayna uploaded a shaming video that sparked international media attention, resulted in two jail terms and inspired a surprise spate of copycat incidents. But while the narrative of good conquering prejudice played out on computer screens around the world, a far more complex and morally ambiguous story was taking place. Through exploring the untold story behind the high profile public shaming, Mike comes to terms with a sense of guilt and uncertainty about what he did. Digilante is a story that results in both positive and negative outcomes, begging the question 'Can modern day shaming practices produce moral outcomes, or are they simply a sadistic new form of interactive entertainment?'
