FLATLAND 2010 satirically addresses the flatness of human communication. Take a magnified look upon the world of FLATLAND, as you watch 11 of its inhabitants figure out how to communicate in a place where everything is so, well, one-sided. This is a world in which abbreviation and simplification rule, where the sound byte supersedes substance, where the instant message overpowers the intimate one.
