Movie Info

With wonderful heart and an impressive sense of scale, Tiffany Shlain's vibrant and insightful documentary, Connected, explores the visible and invisible connections linking major issues of our time-the environment, consumption, population growth, technology, human rights, the global economy-while searching for her place in the world during a transformative time in her life. Employing a splendidly imaginative combination of animation and archival footage, plus several surprises, Shlain constructs a chronological tour of Western modernization through the work of her late father, Leonard Shlain, a surgeon and best-selling author of Art and Physics and The Alphabet Versus the Goddess. With humor and irony, the Shlain family life merges with philosophy to create both a personal portrait and a proposal for ways we can move forward as a civilization. Connected illuminates the beauty and tragedy...

Audience Reviews for Connected: An Autoblogography About Love, Death & Technology

  • Apr 03, 2012
    I saw this at the 2011 Cleveland International Film Fest. Lots of interesting ideas in this doc. Daughter Tiffany makes a film about how it is a small world after all as she thinks about the concepts her father Dr. Leonard Shlain studied. We should think of the world with both hemispheres of our brains. We may want to unplug every now and then to communicate face to face with our friends and neighbors, but the internet today makes us more connected than ever and even is changing the way our neurons fire. Plus because everything is intimately connected neither independence or dependence accurately describe our world. Tiffany demonstrates that the more accurate term is interdependence. Clips from various sources including some Harold Lloyd films as well as the graphics employed make this an entertaining and informative doc.
