Synopsis

Robert is a student at an elite East Coast school who accidentally captures on camera the tragic death of two classmates. Their lives become memorialized as part of an audio-visual assignment designed to speed up the campus-wide healing process. But the video results in an atmosphere of paranoia.

MUBI's take

The ruthlessly assured debut from Antonio Campos, Afterschool is a narcotized study of detachment in the YouTube era. With echoes of Michael Haneke and Gus Van Sant, Campos forges a style marked by its disquieting distance, capturing the deadening moral and emotional effects of a life lived online.
