Connected: An Autoblogography about Love, Death & Technology

I recently watched Tiffany Shlain’s documentary Connected: An Autoblogography about Love, Death, & Technology. It was one of the documentaries in the Sundance Film Festival and won a Women in Film Award. I had the pleasure of meeting Tiffany and she is one passionate and interesting woman.

“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, Tiffany Shlain constructs a chronological tour of Western modernization through the work of her late father, Leonard Shlain, a brain surgeon and best-selling author of Art and Physics and The Alphabet Versus the Goddess. “
