Werner Herzog dokumentiert das Intnernet: Lo and Behold, Reveries of the Connected World (Trailer)

.

Eine Doku vom berühmten Autorenfilmer Werner Herzog über die kulturellen Auswirkungen des Internetz und deren Einflüsse auf uns und die Welt. Der Film lief u.a. schon beim Sundance Festival - was nicht unbedingt das schlechteste Zeichen für Qualität ist - und wird wohl nicht nur einen positiven Klick aufs wwwerfen. 
Society depends on the Internet for nearly everything but rarely do we step back and recognize its endless intricacies and unsettling omnipotence. From the brilliant mind of Werner Herzog comes his newest vehicle for exploration, a playful yet chilling examination of our rapidly interconnecting online lives. 
Herzog documents a treasure trove of interviews of strange and beguiling individuals—ranging from Internet pioneers to victims of wireless radiation, whose anecdotes and reflections weave together a complex portrait of our brave new world. 
Herzog describes the Internet as “one of the biggest revolutions we as humans are experiencing,” and yet he tempers this enthusiasm with horror stories from victims of online harassment and Internet addiction. For all of its detailed analysis, this documentary also wrestles with profound and intangible questions regarding the Internet’s future. Will it dream, as humans do, of its own existence? Can it discover the fundamentals of morality, or perhaps one day understand the meaning of love? Or will it soon cause us—if it hasn’t already—more harm than good?
