Through a variety of participants — spanning age, sex, sexuality, gender-identity and race — we become privy to Woman seeking sex Sundance strangest of sociological experiments. Rather than any deep dive into the state of our collective love lives, or a statement on the often elusive promises of big tech, we get a fascinating visual realization of process itself. Which, inevitably, only led me to more questions. Filmmaker: I read that Searchers emerged from over 75 encounters with a wide range of New Yorkers.

So how did you get all these folks to participate, and how did you ultimately narrow down the characters to those we see onscreen? Velez: Browsing online dating apps is such a personal activity that I only wanted to talk to people who wanted to talk to me. I found these people in different ways — through friends of friends, social media posts, notices on websites, reaching out over apps, etc. My diligent co-producer Milo Borsuk and a small army of students and recent alums from The New School Erin May and Paige Simunovich deserve special mention spearheaded much of the work.

Hannah and I then watched and rewatched her assembly. When two characters felt like they were making the same point we kept the one who stated it most compellingly. When we felt that something was missing from the film I shot more footage. Eventually Hannah had to step away, and I finished the film with another talented editor, Scott Cummings. Over the last month we whittled the film down to its final form, featuring the most charismatic and emotionally-present interviewees — all presented against the backdrop of a city trying to make the best of its COVID summer.

Velez: From the start I wanted the film to feel like an online dating hall of mirrors, with the characters making judgments about the dating profiles and the audience making the same judgments about the characters. Are they stylish?

Do they make me laugh? Would I be excited to meet them IRL? Once production started the reality of shooting during a global pandemic interrupted a lot of my plans.

Rather than being frustrated, though, I looked for ways that these new circumstances could be part of the film. We started shooting interviews outdoors and also filming glimpses of public intimacy for use as transitional moments. These elements inject the film with some of the verve that makes living in NYC so much fun.

Filmmaker: Searchers actually made me reflect on one of your prior works, The Reagan Show. Velez: Yes, absolutely. Life is filled with technologies of self-regard, media that permit us to see ourselves: videos, still photographs, even mirrors. Imagine living like that. Filmmaker: Listening to some of the searchers, specifically one of the older straight white men, made me worry that with online dating we transform a person into an abstract profile, just another product to be obtained.

Were you aware of this human commodification aspect during production, or even through your own personal experience? Velez: Making the film I wrestled with my own feelings about online dating apps. There are many positive aspects to them, but as you point out, they have their downsides as well.

You are the product of t. Dating apps have been deed so that the more we engage with them — the more data we give to them — the more we turn ourselves into their product for sale to other tech companies, and also to each other, via premium service tiers. Filmmaker: Interestingly, out of all your searchers the young gender-nonconforming participant, and also the young cisgender woman and her friend looking for sugar daddies, appeared most satisfied with their dating encounters. Perhaps because they are freed from having to explain themselves, of judgment. Did you find that online connection is just better suited to some segments of the population more than others?

But they navigate dating apps with the same comfort and confidence that earlier generations had flirting at TGI Fridays. For older users online dating rituals are less intuitive. I admire the courage of people like Helene.
