Check out the trailer for a great new documentary from Werner Herzog called Lo and Behold: Reveries Of The Connected World. Herzog is well known for making thought provoking documentaries and this time he’s turned the camera on the internet and ‘connected world’ we live in today. There’s a great review of the film in The Guardian:
What’s real? And what’s false? It’s easy to get lost down the rabbit hole with Herzog. His documentaries – Grizzly Man, Little Dieter Needs to Fly, Cave of Forgotten Dreams – have always slipped on the line between fiction and reality. It’s likely his new one, Lo and Behold: Reveries of the Connected World, follows their lead.
Lo and Behold is about technology and the internet. It’s about robots and AI. It’s about our relationship with tech and how – perhaps – in a few generations our kids won’t need each other, because they’ll have their machines.
The film just screened at the Sundance Film Festival and will hopefully see wider distribution later this year. If you’re interested in the internet, robotics, AI, etc. and how they’re changing society this should be a great documentary to watch.
