Poster for Lo and Behold: Reveries of the Connected World

Master filmmaker Werner Herzog (Grizzly Man, Cave of Forgotten Dreams) takes on the internet in this documentary exploring its humble origins and its near-future impact on the human race. Says Herzog: "It is one of the biggest revolutions we as humans are experiencing." More

Working with NETSCOUT, a world leader in real time service assurance and cybersecurity, which came aboard as a producer and led him into a new world, Herzog conducted original interviews with cyberspace pioneers and prophets such as PayPal and Tesla co-founder Elon Musk, Internet protocol inventor Bob Kahn, and famed hacker Kevin Mitnick. These provocative conversatons reveal the ways in which the online world has transformed how virtually everything in the real world works, from business to education, space travel to healthcare, and the very heart of how we conduct our personal relationships.
