Overview

In this documentary, filmmaker Tiffany Shlain examines how the Internet and social networking are not only changing the way we communicate but how we see the world around us, and the global impact that's being felt as a result. Using animation and archival material, Shlain offers a witty but thoughtful look at the paradoxical human desire for both independence and contact with others, and how the ease and speed of new communication is bringing about a change in out perceptions that's not just an evolution of societal norms but may be creating a fundamental shift in the way our brains process information. At the same time, Shlain explains how her father's battle with cancer upended her own notions of human connections, and her belief that 21st century humans need to strive not for independence but interdependence. Connected: An Autoblogography About Love, Death and Technology was an official selection at the 2011 Sundance Film Festival.
