Lo and Behold. Reveries of the Connected World
Mon 28 Nov 2016
Dir. Werner Herzog, USA, 98 mins, 2016.
In his new film, the Oscar-nominated Herzog (Grizzly Man, Cave Of Forgotten Dreams) chronicles the virtual world from its origins to its outermost reaches, exploring the digital landscape with the same curiosity and imagination he previously trained on earthly destinations as disparate as the Amazon, the Sahara, the South Pole and the Australian outback.
Herzog leads viewers on a journey through a series of provocative conversations that reveal the ways in which the online world has transformed how virtually everything in the real world works – from business to education, space travel to healthcare, and the very heart of how we conduct our personal relationships.
A fascinating journey, loaded with insight
