‘Cancelled’ is a mockumentary featuring an avid consumer and advocate of Bose noise cancelling headphones. Rosie, the protagonist, discovers ways in which she can silence or “cancel” disturbing, challenging or uncomfortable parts of social interaction, public navigation, and even internal conflict. The dystopian result of this is comedic and horrifying. ‘Cancelled’ conveys the absurd tragedy of Rosie’s personal story — an experience which acts as a microcosm of the deadly and cosmic effects that the celebration of ‘cancelling’ has on millennials in American society.
