On the way he considers how our increasingly connected world could reap great benefits – such as self-driving cars and new cures for cancer – but face very real dangers, such as trolling, Internet addiction and our collective vulnerability should the Web fail.

 

 

Fascinated less by the technology than the human stories it creates, “Herzog communicates compassion and astonishment in equal measure” (New York Times).

 

The Telegraph’s Review of the film can be seen here, while a more in-depth meditation on Herzog’s journey to the making of Lo and Behold and the pitfalls of that connected world can be found in this article from the Independent
