Food for Thought Film Series
We are excited to announce that we are partnering with the University of Idaho Sustainability Center for our 2016 film series!! Join us for a FREE community screening of Connected: An Autoblogography About Love, Death & Technology on Wednesday, October 19th at 7pm!
Film Synopsis: Have you ever faked a restroom trip to check your email? Slept with your laptop? Or become so overwhelmed that you just unplugged from it all? In this funny, eye-opening, and inspiring film, Director Tiffany Shlain takes audiences on an exhilarating roller coaster ride to discover what it means to be connected in the 21st century. 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.
Equal parts documentary and memoir, the film unfolds during a year in which technology and science literally become a matter of life and death for the director. Using a brilliant mix of animation, archival footage, and home movies, Shlain reveals the surprising ties that link us not only to the people we love but also to the world at large. 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. 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. A personal film with universal relevance, Connected explores how, after centuries of declaring our independence, it may be time for us to declare our interdependence instead.
FREE screening Wednesday, October 19th doors open at 6:30pm with the film starting at 7pm at the Kenworthy Performing Arts Centre.
