A film by Tiffany Shlain
Between texts and tweets, apps and microchips, we’ve become great at breaking the world down into byte-sized bits. But in the process, have we stopped seeing the forest for the trees, or the root system that connects them all?
In Connected, Tiffany Shlain—award-winning filmmaker and founder of The Webby Awards—sets out to explore these bonds with the help of her father, acclaimed author and thinker Dr. Leonard Shlain. When the unexpected happens during the making of the film, Tiffany is forced to reexamine everything she thought she knew about life, relationships, and connectedness.
Tracing interdependence through history, Shlain discovers the surprising links between right brain and left, alphabets and power, honey bees and stress, hormones and happiness, technology and nature, progress and consequences, and parents and children. The result is a personal film with universal resonance that encourages viewers to make connections of their own. For centuries we’ve been declaring independence. With insight, curiosity, and humor, Connected asks if it’s time to declare our interdependence instead.
"With a tightly synchronized dance between her powerful images and insightful words - with humor, and with a creativity all her own, Tiffany illuminates the issues that affect us all..." — Al Gore
“A highly energized romp through a myriad of ideas about where the human race is headed.” —The Hollywood Reporter
