Werner Herzog, VS 2016
language: english – subtitles: dutch
On Monday introduced by dr. Frank Schipper (TU/e)
In 1969, the first brief message was transmitted over the Internet, launching an astonishing revolution that has woven itself into every aspect of modern life. Majestic, enigmatic, sometimes dangerous and seemingly infinite, the connected world has, almost unnoticed, redefined life for humankind.
In Lo and Behold, Reveries of the Connected World, the Oscar®-nominated documentarian Werner 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.
