Feedback is a story about a person’s relationship to the self. Girls film each other on camera. They look alike, one is a reflection of the other. That is to say, each removes itself. Stereotypes and social stamps are making individuals behave like mechanisms deprived of identity. External and internal noises, flashing images of everyday life thrown into personal internal space, all leading people astray from the inner self.
