Chicago-based filmmaker Jonathan Rivera’s sci fi drama FONEPHACE is that rare combination: an entertaining film that invites us to think, wonder, and maybe change our ways. The film, shot with an iPhone 4S, brings to live a future that is frighteningly close to present day life. In 10 minutes, the film—a nominee in the 2015 iPhone Film Festival—says more about technology and human nature than you might find in a thick book. Plus it delivers plenty of bitter-sweet laughter.
In the following interview, Rivera takes us behind the scenes of the making of his movie.
