Watch Her: Love In The Modern Age 

A new documentary from The Creators Project chronicling reactions to Spike Jonze’s Oscar-nominated film, Her. The documentary, directed by Lance Bangs, features stories and reflections from writers, musicians, actors and contemporary culture experts, including Olivia Wilde, James Murphy and Bret Easton Ellis, on the film Her, and their thoughts on love in the modern age.

Spike Jonze, a longtime friend and collaborator of VICE, has created an intimate investigation into our ties to tech in his newest film, Her, which just received five Oscar nominations, including Best Picture. The film focuses on love, loss, and how artificial intelligence alters our perceptions of those abstract ideas—as well as how our conceptualization of a “relationship” is always changing. 

Inspired by Her’s themes of connection and meaningful communication in the internet age, The Creators Project asked filmmaker Lance Bangs (who also directed this profile of Spike) to interview a range of creative folks, including LCD Soundsystem’s James Murphy, actress Olivia Wilde (who appears in Her), and Marc Maron, about how technology has shaped their love lives.



In case you missed it, here’s Lance Bangs’ excellent short documentary, Her: Love in the Modern Age.

Hey that cool thing I did last year with Starburns for VICE is out now, I think! It’s on a thing called VICELAND, which is like a channel I guess? I can’t watch it, but if you’re in America then maybe you can!

The rest of us, keep an eye out for VICE Party Legends for whenever it makes it’s way into a more accessible corner of the internet- my bit is in Episode 3!
