Jane Schoenbrun has created a highly original and visually haunting coming-of-age story through the eyes of a lonely teen who immerses herself in a new online horror challenge to find a new sense of belonging. As time passes, reality and the game’s parallel life begin to blur.
We’re All Going to the World’s Fair presents a profoundly sad and realistic deep dive into our present digital under-sense, exploring it through the eyes of the person on the other side, looking in, like a mirror. We all hope someone is there to listen, to watch our creations and support us from the other end; hoping somebody actually cares but never truly knowing for sure.
A daring debut that blends drama and very creepy horror to perfection, We’re All Going to the World’s Fair will cast a spell on you and linger long after the first watch. Jane Schoenbrun is an unmissable new voice to watch.
