The Dutch documentary The Woods Smell of Shampoo investigates how media became the filters through which we survey the world around us. Media experiences are often more satisfying than real experiences. Do we actually still have real experiences or are all our feelings and thoughts dictated by our media technologies? And if that's the case, how bad is this anyhow?

When the The Woods Smell of Shampoo was broadcasted on Dutch television in 2001, much of its statements were considered preposterous. Over time the film has gained a certain luster. Next nature avant la lettre.
