Have you ever faked a restroom trip to check your email? Or become so overwhelmed that you just unplugged from it all? In this funny, eye-opening, and inspiring film, Director Tiffany Shlain takes audiences on an exhilarating rollercoaster ride to discover what it means to be connected in the 21st century. In the wake of our community’s third extended power outage in 14 months and our increasing dependence on incessant internet connection and mobile devices, now is the perfect time to step back from our busy lives and consider what connection truly means.
From founding The Webby Awards to being a passionate advocate for The National Day of Unplugging, Shlain’s love/hate relationship with technology serves as the springboard for a thrilling exploration of modern life…and our interconnected future. After centuries of declaring independence, perhaps its time to declare our interdependence instead. www.connectedthefilm.com
