Captions were supplied by the NFB."An interactive documentary that takes us into the worlds of eight music fans to see how the Internet transforms their interpersonal relationships and helps forge their identities. For these singular young people living on the fringe, the web is a tool to connect with others, with whom they share the same tastes in music and clothing, and the same codes. Is social media an opportunity to increase social interaction, or a factor contributing to isolation? Does the web transform identity, or only amplify personality? Is life online an extension of reality, or an entirely separate world? Far removed from expert views and preconceived notions, My Tribe Is My Life
is an exploration based on the human journey, providing a voice to young men and women who use these tools in their daily lives. Their encounters illustrate how to link up in the era of connectivity and microsocieties."
