Are we doomed? Or will we conquer all?

Whatever the outcome, Werner Herzog argues that mass connectivity marks a beginning of a shift in our morals, and indeed, in what it means to be human.”

Society depends on the Internet for nearly everything but rarely do we step back and recognize its endless intricacies and unsettling omnipotence.

Werner Herzog explores – in a playful yet chilling examination – our rapidly interconnecting online lives.”

„Over a career spanning nearly 50 years, the German filmmaker Werner Herzog, 73, has managed to gracefully pivot from outrageous and eccentric narrative films (“Aguirre: Wrath of God,” “Fitzcarraldo”) to poignant and poetic documentaries (“Cave of Forgotten Dreams”).

Now, Mr. Herzog has set his eye on the internet, or what he calls “the thing.”

 “Lo And Behold” traces the internet’s rise from its bewildering inception on California college campuses in the late 1960s and offers postulations about its future and possibilities from experts, some of them dread-filled and others hopeful.”
