Petaluma, Calif. —Connected: an autoblogography about love, death & technology, a film exploring society’s increasing reliance and interdependence on technology, will be presented at Santa Rosa Junior College’s Petaluma campus on Monday, October 22 at 6 p.m.
Filmmaker Tiffany Shlain will participate in a question and answer session following the film, which has been described as part memoir and part documentary.
Shlain, honored by Newsweek magazine as one of the “Women Shaping the 21st Century,” is founder of the Webby Awards and co-founder of the International Academy of Digital Arts & Sciences. She’s known for innovative projects examining the intersection of culture, science, technology and life.
Shlain’s last four films have premiered at Sundance Film Festival and her films have received 50 awards, including a “Disruptive Innovation Award” from the 2012 Tribeca Film Festival. The US State Department selected Connected as one of the films representing America at embassies around the world for its 2012 American Film Showcase.
The New York Times wrote that Connected examines “everything from the Big Bang to twitter… a cinematic clickstream” and “incredibly engaging. So lively and so fun, I could not take my eyes off of it.”
Screening of Connected is co-sponsored by Santa Rosa Junior College, the Jewish Film Festival of Sonoma County, and Petaluma Film Alliance.
The film will be shown in the Carole L. Ellis Auditorium on the SRJC Petaluma Campus, 680 Sonoma Mountain Parkway, Petaluma. Box office opens at 5 p.m. General admission tickets are $5, SRJC students are free with student ID. Parking on campus is $4.
