August 19 - September 11, 2016
SIFF Cinema Uptown | Through Thu Sep 8
SIFF Film Center | Fri Sep 9–Sun Sep 11
From legendary director Werner Herzog comes a beguiling philosophical exploration of how the internet and technology has changed humanity, chronicling the virtual world from its origins to its outermost reaches and featuring interviews with visionaries, scientists, hackers, and a group of forest dwellers recovering from "internet overdose".
Oscar-nominated director Werner Herzog explores 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.
