  • We Live in Public

    2008. USA. Directed by Ondi Timoner. Irreverent, insightful, and authentic, Timoner's Sundance Grand Jury Prize–winner is a boundlessly resourceful insider's view of the rise and fall of Internet pioneer Josh Harris, the "Warhol of the Web," and a totally entertaining document of heady times in the art and technology vortex of 1990s downtown Manhattan. Mirroring the excitement, innovation, and imaginative creativity that made the technology we live with today, the documentary captures the performance "live-in" QUIET, We Live In Public, Josh Harris's "millennium bunker" that brought more than a hundred of the art and technology world's leading lights together to live out their fantasies and fears under twenty-four-hour surveillance. The film takes the viewer on a true rollercoaster ride, oscillating between repulsion and fascination, from the birth of the Web to how it has turned on itself, becoming a cautionary tale about the way we employ and embrace technology. 90 min.

In the Film exhibition New Directors/New Films 2009
