We’re All Going to the World’s Fair is the online experience of a teenage girl in horror movie form

Nothing I’ve seen has captured the strange experience of being a teenage girl on the internet as perfectly as new indie horror movie We’re All Going to the World’s Fair. 

It taps into a very specific type of teenage dysphoria, one where identity is a malleable, shifting thing. Who you are is a mix of your reality, the ‘you’ that you create in your mind and the one you’re designated by the strangers who find a way through the boundaries of your private world. It’s a feeling that time-traveled me back to the arrival of the internet in the family home, and the entire world of strangers, communities, and fandoms that appeared instantly like a magical kingdom I’d found in the back of a wardrobe.
