Here is the trailer from the upcoming film “THE EMOJI STORY”. The film is directed by Robin Wright. Starring Martha Shane and Ian Cheney.
The rapid rise of emoji (Japanese for “picture character”) is a global phenomenon without precedent. Their widespread use and ability to convey complex messages have not only cemented emoji’s place as an emerging digital language, but prompted difficult questions about the creation of a language and digital communication’s fraught ties to identity and inclusion. The Emoji Story is a deep dive into this ever evolving world, shedding fresh light on the private consortium that approves new emoji offerings and the individuals fighting to make the language more representative of its billions of users.
