Melanie Bonajo’s film “Progress vs. Regress” is about new forms of ‘normality’ and the fear of being left behind. They explore how technological innovations have changed social relations and the influence of technological innovations on social relationships through the perspective of the elderly, who are often perceived as having no economic value and are not represented in our visual culture. Through personal, intimate and touching stories, the film portrays the needs, expectations and challenges of a generation that is trying to integrate in a society striving for constant progress, efficiency and speed.
