Dir: Werner Herzog | USA / UK | 2016 | 98 mins
The great Werner Herzog takes on the virtual world in this new documentary, chronicling it from its origins to its outermost reaches and exploring the digital landscape with the same curiosity and imagination he previously trained on earthly destinations as disparate as the Amazon, the Sahara, the South Pole and the Australian outback. Leading viewers through a series of provocative conversations with his trademark dry wit and acerbic observation, he explores how the online world has transformed how almost everything in the real world works – from business to education, space travel to the very heart of our personal relationships – as well as its dizzying future potential.
“With interviewees ranging from Elon Musk to a gaming addict, Werner Herzog presents the web in all its wildness and utopian potential” **** Lance Bakare, Guardian
