Connected_poster_final_web Hey, Tiffany does great, thoughtful documentary work like The Tribe, which I like a lot.

Today, at the Sundance Film Festival, she premieres Connected, and here's what they say at Sundance:

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 brain 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 of human endeavor while boldly championing the importance of personal connectedness for understanding and coping with today's global conditions." Shari Frilot, Sundance FIlm Festival
