Lo and Behold, Reveries of the Connected World 2016 12

98 mins USA Director. Werner Herzog

The internet – what would be different if it wasn’t there, or if it stopped working all the time? How would you think differently if you didn’t have a mobile phone? In this far-reaching documentary, legendary filmmaker Werner Herzog meets pioneers of the web and prime hackers of it, inventors of robots and explorers of artificial intelligence, and people whose lives have been changed for ever after their or others’ use of the internet altered their behaviour and ‘human-ness’. Lo and Behold… explores our connectedness and how we might in the near future find new ways to exist.
