“Tiffany Shlain demonstrates, with lyrical simplicity, our interdependence on one another and the interconnectedness of humanity with all life on earth. With a tightly synchronized dance between her powerful images and insightful words… With humor, and with a creativity all her own, Tiffany illuminates the issues that affect us all—including environmental degradation, dizzying technological innovation and population growth—and helps us to understand our inter-relationship with the world in a way that is both freeing and inspiring. Throughout, she also presents and honors the deep wisdom of her late father, Leonard Shlain, reminding us of the deepest connections that breathe meaning into life.” —Al Gore
“…With wonderful heart, humor and irony, and an impressive sense of scale, Connected creates both a personal portrait and a proposal for ways we can move forward as a civilization.”
— Shari Frilot, Sundance Film Festival
“Director Tiffany Shlain delivered what was, improbably, both the most thought-provoking and the most personally emotional documentary of the whole festival. It will change your thinking, and what more can a documentary do?” —Michael Dunaway, Paste Magazine
