2 AMAZING Documentaries about how technology and the connections it creates, impacts our lives.
First, SLEEPING WITH SIRI, a short documentary in the Morgon Spurlock style. Journalist Michael Stusser goes on a technology bender for 1 week, using technology for everything... texts, Tweets, FB, GPS, etc. After 1 week, we see the impact of tech overload on his health. He then goes one week without... finds himself searching for pay phones, having to read a map, etc... but strangely, his health improves by the end of the week. This is a very funny and poignant look at being connected.
The second film, CONNECTED, comes from the founder of the Webby's, Tiffany Shlain as she takes the audience on an exhilarating rollercoaster ride to discover what it means to be connected in the 21st century. After centuries of declaring independence, perhaps it’s time to declare our interdependence instead.
Both of these documentaries show how far technology has taken us and what the consequences of that journey are.
