Werner Herzog's 'Lo and Behold, Reveries of the Connected World' opens August 19 at the Film Society of Lincoln Center: filmlinc.org/newreleases
From the brilliant mind of Werner Herzog comes a new exploratory documentary, which looks at the intricacies and unsettling omnipotence of technology—and society’s rapidly growing dependence on it. Structured in chapters that cover the birth of the Internet, self-driving cars, athlete-robots, and beyond, the film shows us captivating and bizarre stories from eclectic people, whose experiences with technology at once charm and sober. The bigger picture of our brave new world looms behind Herzog’s authorial voice as he threads together these stories that imagine the revolutionary, otherworldly, and often dangerous nature of our wired lives. But while the future of humanity’s relationship to technology remains up in the air, Lo and Behold, Reveries of the Connected World wrestles with the profound and intangible questions that all of us should be asking. A Magnolia Pictures release.
