“The Emoji Story” Q&A with Martha Shane, director
Advance viewing is recommended; film will not be shown during Q&A.
The rapid rise of emoji is a global phenomenon without precedent. Their widespread use and ability to convey complex messages have not only cemented emoji’s place as an emerging digital language, but prompted difficult questions about the creation of a language and digital communication’s fraught ties to identity and inclusion. In The Emoji Story, directors Martha Shane and Ian Cheney shed light on the private consortium that approves new emoji offerings and the individuals fighting to make the language more representative.
