About Love at First Stream
The foundation of the story is the parent-child dynamic, but Molina said that the film explores the digital platform as the new medium in establishing relationships. The film is a unique collaboration between Star Cinema and KUMU as the livestreaming platform is incorporated into the film.
The young stars Daniela Stranner, Anthony Jennings, Kaori Oinuma and Jeremiah Lisbo took on the tasks of first-time lead actors and they didn’t disappoint. It’s a certified modern day rom-com that will have you rethinking the impact of social media when it comes to relationships.
