SYNOPSIS

“Love used to be complicated. With social media, it’s even worse”: such is the catch phrase of the web series Alice’s Textapes, created by Angela Soupe, who joined the new “TV series” program of the Fémis in 2013. It’s a mix of comedy and cynicism that leaves nobody indifferent!
Inspired by the Tumblr board that bears the same title, Alice’s Textapes stages the life of a hyper-connected thirty-year-old woman, torn between her wish to stay single and her longing to find prince charming. She spends most of her days playing with “guys” on the internet and sharing her daily love life with her “friends” via Facebook.
Alice’s Textapes deals with love, Internet and social network addictions. Throughout the episodes, Alice’s different messages (tweets, Facebook messages, emails) are posted on the screen and shared with internet viewers. On the “Studio 4.0” platform, an interactive version of the episodes allows internet users to rewrite the story of the textapes by writing the exchanged messages themselves.
