Influence spends 12 consecutive hours in the intimate company of a young Los Angeles social media influencer, Féline.  

She begins the day with the removal of a small mole on her neck – the biopsy results from which she will get 12 hours later.  We follow her from appointment to appointment as she encounters colleagues, coworkers, friends and family – but all the while this sudden awareness of her own mortality brings with it a changed perspective on her privileged life. Influence examines our contemporary culture’s obsession with image and our increasing dependence on technology.
