Short Film About Smartphone Overuse

"I Forgot My Phone" tackles the personal effects of smartphone overuse. 

Actress/musician/comedian/tap dancer Charlene deGuzman wrote and starred in the film.

Through very few words, and familliar, intimate social scenes, deGuzman captures a day in the life of a phone-less person.
