Connected : Available on iTunes at: http://bit.ly/VGQ1R2 "Everything from the Big Bang to Twitter...Incredibly engaging." - The New York Times facebook.com/connectedthefilm www.connectedthefilm.com twitter: @tiffanyshlain 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 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. Directed and edited by Tiffany Shlain Produced by Tiffany Shlain Carlton Evans Written by Tiffany Shlain, Ken Goldberg, Carlton Evans, and Sawyer Steele Stefan Nadelman, Art Director Dalan McNabola, Co-Editor Peter Coyote, Narrator
