A short film from this year’s Toronto International Film Festival offers a real insight into the role the Internet and social media plays in peoples lives. Noah, from Patrick Cederberg and Walter Woodman, chronicles a breakup told entirely from the perspective of one person’s computer screen. And in doing so it gives a glimpse into how we are living our lives online.

Set, almost entirely, on Noah’s Facebook, Skype, iPhone and Chatroulette conversations, the film tells a coherent story about of a break-up. In doing so it shows how much of our lives can now be understood by looking at our use of these channels. How our behaviours online influence other people and influencer our own lives. And the importance of these new communications channels.

There is much we can learn from watching how different groups use digital tools and social media. Noah gives us a glimpse into how young people are communicating and living their lives online.
