From the director: Hot Seat is about females being exploited online. The film shows how young women everyday are being filmed/photographed in the nude in exchange for fame/alcohol/drugs etc. It looks at why some of the girls are used as they are. Are they lost? Are they looking for fame? How is the internet and the perception of the “number of likes” driving behaviour? It will be personal, do you recognise yourself in any of this? Do you know who's actually looking and liking you, again and again?
