The rapid rise ? of emoji (Japanese for “picture character”) is a global ? phenomenon without precedent. Their widespread use and ability to convey complex messages have not only cemented emoji’s place as an emerging digital language ?, but prompted difficult questions ? about the creation of a language and digital communication’s fraught ties ? to identity and inclusion. In  PICTURE CHARACTER, Directors Martha Shane and Ian Cheney lead viewers ? on a deep dive into the ever evolving world of picture characters, from their humble beginnings in Japan ?? to mobile keyboards ? the world ? over, and shed fresh light ? on the private consortium ? that approves new emoji offerings and the individuals fighting ✊ to make the language more representative of its billions of users.
