Darknet Delivery: A Silk Road Story

In this 14-minute short, co-director/co-writer Lacey Dorn, who grew up in San Antonio and attended Alamo Heights High School and Saint Mary's Hall before studying at Stanford University, peers into the lives of a group of young adults who stumble across a website where ordering drugs online is only a mouse click away. It's a film, she said, that explores "a general disconnect in our generation." Dorn, who now calls New York City home, adds, "You can know someone intimately in the analog world and have no clue about their identity in the cyber world. Silk Road encompasses this society rich in cyber connectivity but poor in human interaction."
