The Twilight Phone

There is a future that is destined for society. It is a future that revolves around a single inanimate object that does a lot, but does very little. It keeps users in touch with everybody, but no one. It keeps eyes down and causes poor posture. It is the middle ground between reality and cyberspace. This is our future. It is an area which we call the Twilight Phone.

This video was created by participants in Wide Angle Youth Media’s Baltimore Speaks Out! Program at the Patterson Park Public Charter School.
