In LO AND BEHOLD: REVERIES OF THE CONNECTED WORLD, the Oscar-nominated Herzog chronicles the virtual world from its origins to its outermost reaches, exploring the digital landscape with the same curiosity and imagination he previously trained on earthly destinations as disparate as the Amazon, the Sahara, the South Pole and the Australian outback. Herzog leads viewers on a journey through a series of provocative conversations that 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.


Never at a loss for words, or for strange and perilous new worlds to explore, Werner Herzog considers whether the technologies that unite us might one day eclipse us in “Lo and Behold,” an alternately playful and unsettling 10-part essay on how the Internet continues to evolve and encroach on all avenues of society and consciousness. Touching on everything from the dangers of hacking and Web addiction to the unchecked possibilities of artificial intelligence, these discrete “reveries of the connected world” represent the latest of Herzog’s heady explorations of what it means to be human (and even post-human), rendered in his characteristically personal, decidedly analog style. With its bemused, skeptical pose, the film is unlikely to become an arthouse sensation on the level of his 2011 3D spectacular, “Cave of Forgotten Dreams”; still, given that the Internet has done wonders for Herzog’s own celebrity, this Netscout-funded project should friend plenty of viewers through streaming services following a theatrical run.
