Fomo Sapiens

A young couple, suffering from the worst imaginable form of “fear of missing out”, decides to take on a tough challenge.

‘FOMO SAPIENS’ is a Swedish short comedy about a couple who are suffering from the ultimate form of fear of missing out (‘fomo’). They decide to spend an evening at a restaurant, leaving their little toddlers at home, which turns out to be harder than expected.

‘FOMO SAPIENS’ is a satirical comment on how people tend to use technology these days, exploring the theme of fear of missing out and how to depict it in the most absurd and silly way. We wanted to create an absurd atmosphere, but with subtle acting, packaged as a traditional romantic comedy.
