Meet “Kim” (Michaele Nicole). Kim is a woman in her mid-30s who is insanely popular on social media. Selfies are LIFE to her, as is wearing scantily clad outfits to ensure that ALL the men love her, and ALL the women want to be her. If you clicked on her social media profile, you’d think that she has the absolute perfect life. Every single picture she posts is perfect. Every location she posts them from is perfect. Every status update gets thousands of “likes”. You get the picture. She is caught up on social media. The only problem is that most other aspects of her life are empty. She is jobless, homeless, and not as confident. The guy (“Lee” played by Demetrius Lovejoy) who she’s really interested in isn’t at all wrapped up in this online persona.
“Miss Represent” takes the ever familiar social media world and cleverly presents it to viewers in a fashion that is rarely seen on film by taking a social media platform from the internet and turning it into an actual place…a woman’s living room! Every person represents a reaction (like love, haha, angry, sad, and wow). This is a story about how being yourself is always better than “misrepresenting” yourself to the world of social media.
