Sebastian Sommer has carved a niche for himself as a filmmaker for the Tumblr generation, working with a coterie of talent whose personas are directly linked with likes and follows and favorites. His latest work is the short film Self Aware, which we’re premiering here. Starring rising transgender hero Hari Nef, actress India Menuez, model and artist Alexandra Marzella, musician Rachel Trachtenburg, and performance artist Claire Christerson, the film captures a specific moment in time.
It shows these friends getting together for a night of wine as they listen to a story Hari Nef recalls about her childhood experiences stepping on glue. The film captures the strong personalities of these rising stars as they comfortably chat with one another. Watch it above.
