Searchers

Searchers

Czech premiere

In New York, a city of endless opportunities, the pandemic cut singles off from the possibility of establishing new relationships. Many of them then invested their hopes of finding romance in dating apps.

A beautiful face, an athletic body or a university diploma. What determines success in online dating? This playful documentary shows a wide range of people of all ages who have decided to find their ideal partner online, whether they are novices or experts in these rapidly evolving technological tools. Thanks to a special shooting technique, viewers can simultaneously see the faces of the "searchers" and their screens. The footage thus reflects the struggle to find love online, accompanied by awkwardness but also the joy of discovering the unknown. As the director himself decides to try dating online, the film takes on a personal dimension. But filling out a profile on a dating site sometimes seems harder than getting a degree from Princeton.
