Herzog's Lo and Behold Trailer

"The explosion of information technology on the internet has lead to some of its greatest glories." Magnolia has released an official US trailer for the new Werner Herzog documentary Lo and Behold: Reveries of The Connected World, in which Herzog profiles the internet and how it has changed the world, for better or worse. The doc premiered at the Sundance Film Festival earlier this year to mostly positive reviews. We featured the first two trailers a few months ago while waiting for release info to be revealed. The doc has 10 distinct chapters, from "The Early Days" to "The Future", and explores both the good and bad of what the internet has provided. I'm still quite excited to see this doc, anything by Herzog is usually quite fascinating.

Lo and Behold Poster

Description from the Sundance 2016 guide: "Society depends on the Internet for nearly everything but rarely do we step back and recognize its endless intricacies and unsettling omnipotence. From the brilliant mind of Werner Herzog comes his newest vehicle for exploration, a playful yet chilling examination of our rapidly interconnecting online lives. Herzog documents a treasure trove of interviews of strange and beguiling individuals—ranging from Internet pioneers to victims of wireless radiation, whose anecdotes and reflections weave together a complex portrait of our brave new world. Herzog describes the Internet as 'one of the biggest revolutions we as humans are experiencing,' and yet he tempers this enthusiasm with horror stories from victims of online harassment and Internet addiction." Herzog's latest doc first premiered at the 2016 Sundance Film Festival in January. Lo and Behold opens in theaters + VOD starting on August 19th.

    Ole Herzog's at it again...so it should be interesting at the least.

      Westerners have a certain concept of how a monk should behave, but this is the 21st century after all.

        Well said, but still...it was rather amusing seeing all these monks who meditate for enlightenment and ego loss texting and twittering away which is nothing if not egocentric behavior. Quite an odd image still. Yes, indeed...it is the 21st century, but Herzog was definitely making a point...which I thought amusing and right on the button about the internet, these smart phones, etc. and the effect its all having on culture and human behavior. Cheers.

    Computers are, in some respect, a bit disappointment for me since they haven't changed the world for better. No matter how fun and creative they are. But every inquiry in them is interesting ...

    Tweeting munks. Must watch.
  • I love the internet, but it's also mental. Will be checking this for sure.

    Musk gave a look like, "Shit, this guy's crazy!" Haha!~
  • Gotta love Werner....Based on the trailers for each, this looks even funnier than 'Monster Trucks'
  • Internet frees people to better enslave them.
