Warning: Some NSFW content between 11:00 and 15:00

Noah is a 17-minute short by Canadian filmmakers Walter Woodman and Patrick Cederberg, and it tells the story of the end of a teenager''s relationship. But it does so in a surprising way: the whole movie takes place on a computer screen. 

Following the distracted, click-happy habits of modern life, the film offers an intimate perspective on how digital technology is changing some human relationships. The movie grew out of the filmmakers' personal experiences: both Woodman and Cederberg quit Facebook about a year ago.

"“I felt that I had developed an unhealthy addiction to lurking and creeping," Cederberg, who's 23, told the New Yorker

The pair met when they were studying film at Ryerson University in Toronto. Noah was their thesis project, and they made it for a total of $300. 

The film played at the Student Film Showcase at the Toronto International Film Festival, where it won the YouTube Award for Best Canadian Short Film. It's also getting a lot of attention from viewers, racking up almost three quarters of a million views on TIFF's YouTube channel.

And again: a warning,  there are some graphic images in this short film (specifically between 11:00 and 15:00).
