Hello, PaXifica has set up this Givealittle campaign to assist in contributing to the cost of producing a new Short Film, titled, An Empty Bliss Beyond this Point. The film portrays how Social Media, which is designed to be addictive, becomes a significant disruption to the lives of a young couple. The film speaks of how Social Media can impose a distraction to attentiveness to our most treasured relationships. How addiction to the vaporous digital stories can prevent us from seizing the brightness and firmness of the ‘present’.
