I Love Alaska

May 15, 2009

I Love Alaska is a series of mini-documentaries over at minimovies.com by Lernert Engelberts and Sander Plug based on the 2006 incident when personal search queries of 650,000 AOL users were accidentally leaked on the interwebs and actually made me go a bit weepy while watching it last night (then again, I am a big softie).

Synopsis: “I Love Alaska” tells the story of one of those AOL users. We get to know a religious middle-aged woman from Houston, Texas, who spends her days at home behind her TV and computer. Her unique style of phrasing combined with her putting her ideas, convictions and obsessions into AOL’s search engine, turn her personal story into a disconcerting novel of sorts.

Over a period of three months, a portrait of a woman emerges who is diligently searching for likeminded souls. The list of her search queries read aloud by a voice-over reads like a revealing character study of a somewhat obese middle-aged lady in her menopause, who is looking for a way to rejuvenate her sex life. In the end, when she cheats on her husband with a man she met online, her life seems to crumble around her. She regrets her deceit, admits to her Internet addiction and dreams of a new life in Alaska.

The New Frontiersman

Some if not all of the content has caused debate and discussion across the web, especially the moon landing shots, which were dissected by all the space enthusiasts here.

One of the richest pieces of content so far was a fake seventies news reel of NBS News, celebrating 10 years of Dr Manhattan ….
