Digital culture and the fact of being in the connected revolution are the themes driving this movies /documentaries entering theatres this fall. From my point of view, both a must see, since they deal with hot topics regarding our every day society.
Just think about this basic questions? Do they apply to you as well?
Have you ever faked a restroom trip to check your email?
Slept with your laptop?
Or become so overwhelmed that you just unplugged from it all?
If so, or when these questions sound familiar, director Tiffany Shlain takes you on an exhilarating rollercoaster with the movie connected. In search of what it means to be connected in the 21st century. Equal parts documentary and memoir, the film unfolds during a year in which technology and science literally become a matter of life and death for the director. As Shlain’s father battles brain cancer and she confronts a high-risk pregnancy, her very understanding of connection is challenged. Using a brilliant mix of animation, archival footage, and home movies, Shlain reveals the surprising ties that link us not only to the people we love but also to the world at large. A personal film with universal relevance, Connected explores how, after centuries of declaring our independence, it may be time for us to declare our interdependence instead.

Reactions are always welcome though the comment section….but this movies, the film really got me thinking!
Is different kind of movie….not a documentary, more a philosophical anthem on digital culture, the fear and hope which are surrounding it. Popular artist show us insights on how the digital culture invades in our lives and what it does to us and our society.
This movie is build around several questions, and an esthetically approach with 21st digital “celebs” like Moby, Robin, … but also Seth Godin, …
An MTV production, so something completely different…but interesting as well! Check out the trailer and show!
