Welcome to the digital jungle… The film considers the impact of current and future of global connectivity on all our lives. The film also considers both the benefits and complications that arise from digital connections. Interviews with leading luminaries including Foursquare founder Dennis Crowley, Wikipedia’s Jimmy Wales and Nicholas Negroponte provide an insightful look at our lives.
Michael is RP’s resident film nerd/snob. He came to filmmaking after being dazzled by Macaulay Culkin’s ground-breaking performance in Home Alone. As a child, his renditions of Marissa Tomei in My Cousin Vinny and Tommy Lee Jones in The Fugitive became staples of family gatherings.
