Tessellate – Review – Catharine Horsley

OCanFilmFest2020 Ottawa Canadian Film Festival

If you could change one thing about yourself, would you? What if you could change everything?

In Rob Jacobsen’s film Tessellate, technology physically controls people by altering their personalities.

Jacobsen conveys how the individuals want to be perfect; their “imperfection breeds desire.” They are rewired to conceal their flaws and characteristics in order to become better people.

Rob Jacobsen colourfully depicts how visually stimulating technology is, and that all identities are interconnected. He shows how change, although desirable, is ultimately unnecessary, if people are unapologetically themselves.
