The Emoji Story.
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. This documentary will 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.
