Dick Pics! A Documentary (2019)
A stop-motion documentary that asks men one of the crucial questions of our era: “What compels you to send pictures of your penis to non-consenting others?”
As a culture, the public reaction to unsolicited dick pics tends to fall somewhere along the lines of “Dick pics are gross but also hilarious. Perverts, eh? Who can ever understand what they’re thinking?” We overwhelmingly dismiss this behavior as mildly gross, but also as an inexplicable and, perhaps, inevitable consequence of modern connectivity. "Dick Pics! (A Documentary)" aims instead to understand this behavior as a conscious choice made by all different kinds of individuals looking for specific, often divergent outcomes. Pulling from conversations and threads on Reddit, this documentary is self-conscious and hilarious, but also earnestly and legitimately works to understand the reasoning that makes sending someone an unsolicited picture of your penis seem like a good idea.
