Official Trailer:

Roland, a retired engineer, gets an iPad from his family to keep him updated in the modern digital world. Instead of digital euphoria the new technology breaks him down in to bits. Roland longs for the world he once understood and for the love of his ex-wife who left him when the world was still analogue.

Directors statement Beata Konar:
“I have been working as an independent filmmaker, writer and journalist for all my career. My vision is to produce films with a humanistic commitment discussing important ethical, existential and social issues. The mission is to tell stories that needs to be told, stories that makes people reflect about who they are, who they want to be, and what they expect out of life. I hope that Memory Metals will open up for a discussion about the issue of loosing your identity in a world that changes fast. Digitalization brings a new form of illiteracy that we have to become aware of. We have to talk about those who are left outside the big technical revolution, about those who no longer will be able to be a part of the modern society. Who is going to help them and how can we include them?
