Lo and Behold, Reveries of the Connected World: Herzog’s Insightful Docu about the Way We Live Now

In his new documentary, LO AND BEHOLD, REVERIES OF THE CONNECTED WORLD, the iconic German director Werner Herzog chronicles the virtual world from its origins to its outermost reaches, showing radical transformation not only in technology and social media but also in the ways we live our everyday lives.

After premiering at Sundance and premiering in NY at BAMcinemaFest, the film opens in theaters nationwide on August 19.
In LO AND BEHOLD, REVERIES OF THE CONNECTED WORLD, Herzog functions as a tour guide, taking viewers us an exploration of the digital landscape with the same curiosity and imagination he had previously utilized 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.
Playful in some moments, disturbing and unsettling in others, the movie is stimulating and provocative due to the director’s sharp eyes and ears, relying on a set of colorful characters that reaffirm Herzog’s firm belief that we do live in revolutionary times.
