On the 40th anniversary of the creation of the Internet, WE LIVE IN PUBLIC tells the story of the effect the web is having on our society, as seen through the eyes of "the greatest Internet pioneer you've never heard of," visionary Josh Harris. Award-winning director, Ondi Timoner (DIG!), documented his tumultuous life for more than a decade to create a riveting, cautionary tale of what to expect as the virtual world inevitably takes control of our lives.
WE LIVE IN PUBLIC made a huge impact on its theatrical release, and garnered the prestigious Grand Jury Prize at Sundance, making director Timoner the only two-time winner (after her previous award for DIG!). Now this outstanding documentary makes its way to DVD on 1 March 2010 courtesy of Dogwoof.
Josh Harris, often called the "Warhol of the Web," founded Pseudo.com, the first Internet television network during the infamous dot-com boom of the 1990s. He also created his vision of the future: "Quiet" an underground bunker in NYC where 100 people lived together on camera for 30 days at the turn of the millennium. With Quiet, Harris proved how, in the not-so-distant future of life online, we will willingly trade our privacy for the connection and recognition we all deeply desire. Through his experiments, including another six-month stint living under 24-hour live surveillance online which led him to mental collapse, he demonstrated the price we will all pay for living in public.
WE LIVE IN PUBLIC is an outstanding documentary about the virtual world as well as being a fascinating character study of a visionary who may be a genius or a mad man.
