Some people say World War III has already started, fought on the internet through the spread of information. Filter bubbles, “post-truth”, fake news, and ideological battles reach out from behind screens, manipulating reality.
Trigger Warning is a speculative fiction film set in a near-future of escalating mistrust and conflict, enabled by the algorithms that control our social networks and news feeds.
The internet brings us together, but also divides us like never before. What needs to change for us to truly be united?

Founded by Anab Jain and Jon Ardern in 2009, the Anglo-Indian studio’s early work brought speculative design approaches to new audiences, working for some of the world’s biggest like Microsoft Research, Sony, Samsung and Nokia, and exhibiting work at MoMA New York, the National Museum of China, and the V&A in London.
Over the years, the studio has gained critical acclaim for producing work that navigates the entangled wilderness of our technology, politics, culture, and environment to imagine new ways of seeing, being, and acting. The studio’s partners and clients continue to grow, and include Government of UAE, Innovate UK, Cabinet Office UK, UNDP, Future Cities Catapult, and Forum for the Future.
