Sundance ’16 trailer of the day: ‘Lo and Behold: Reveries of the Connected World’

First Published      Last Updated Dec 29 2015 08:14 am

Today's trailer is for "Lo and Behold: Reveries of the Connected World," Werner Herzog's guided tour of the Internet, which will screen at the 2016 Sundance Film Festival, which starts in 24 days.

Herzog, whose documentaries have taken people from the Alaskan wilds ("Grizzly Man") to caves filled with ancient pictographs ("Cave of Forgotten Dreams") to chilly Antarctica ("Encounters at the End of the World"), this time ponders the scope and scale of the Internet — and what might happen to our society if it should ever collapse.

"All of us, collectively, have to become the guardians of this fragile new world," Herzog intones in his dour German cadence.

"Lo and Behold: Reveries of the Connected World" will screen in the festival's Documentary Premieres program.
