Forever fascinated by the foundations and values of human civilization, Werner Herzog turns his focus to the online world. Touching on robotics, artificial intelligence, surveillance, digital society, and much more, this documentary explores the past, present, and future of the internet, pondering the promising—and disconcerting—implications of interconnection on our lives.

This screening will be presented in conjunction with the film course “Lessons of Darkness”: Werner Herzog’s Absurdist Studies in the Human Condition, taught by Paul Wright, Ph.D. Seating for screening-only attendees will begin at 7:00 pm.
