"American Quartet" is a short film set in the near future, in which the newest digital device is a diary. The device, owned by everyone, records only each individual's emotions and memories for the purpose of retrieving and re-experiencing them. This film draws on the increasingly divided ideological divisions in our country, and suggests that technology, instead of dividing us, can be used to create connection and empathy toward those with ideologies unlike our own.
