María Bethania Medina Padrón’s project Do you feel me? Tales from the front of the ‘latergramers’ tackles the question how non-digital natives, also known as digital- immigrants use the social network Instagram. The educator and author Marc Presky coined the term digital-immigrant in 2001, describing this group as old world-settlers, who had lived in the analogue age and immigrated to the digital world. The short film focuses on a group of both male and female adults between 33 and 37 years from Argentina and Venezuela. The experimental approach explores how the respective interviewees reflects on their use of Instagram, whilst they are simultaneously logged in and use the platform.
