"But on the Internet, you're exposed to people that will do anything."Fame wasn't Kiki's intention when she first logged on in 2006.
She was just a lonely 13-year-old whose days at Sawgrass Springs Middle School had become a bullying hell.
A year earlier, Kirsten "Kiki" Ostrenga was just another tween nobody living her so-called life in Coral Springs, Florida.
Her family had transplanted from the Chicago suburb of Streamwood for dad Scott's computer-engineering job.
The Ostrengas and their three kids — Kyler, Kirsten and Dakota — were lured by promises of palm trees and sunshine.
Seated at a cafe near her current home outside Orlando — she prefers I don't reveal the precise location — she's stick-thin in a black minidress, a heavy quartz-skull necklace and a skull ring; despite her tough-girl accessories, she comes across as tentative and frail, hugging her studded purse for comfort.
"I never thought I would run into these types of people," she says.
The American Wikileaks Hackerhere are 530 Facebook profiles claiming to be Kiki Kannibal, including one with just over 20,000 fans, and none of them are hers.
Some are obvious fakes, like "Kiki Dorkface Kannibal," but others are hard to detect.A hard-working single mother and wife of a getaway driver who is about to be released is approached by an unassuming and gentle man, completely unaware though of his inscrutable and utterly impelling motives. He also does the majority of his acting without speaking - something one doesn't see a ton of in North American films, and for this I am grateful to the director and writer.Olimpia Melinte is also very good and understated in her performance, standing up just fine to Carlos as she turns his world upside down."Five years in, the cyberstalking nightmare shows no signs of stopping, and threat assessment has become the backdrop of Kiki's life.She doesn't take any of it lightly, especially since the message she got last spring: "I know where you live and I'm gonna kill your fucking cat." Soon afterward, her cat Sebastian disappeared."It's scary," says Kiki, her words muffled by her braces.And Kiki's public has responded in kind, expressing both its love and loathing without boundaries.
