Werner Herzog’s Lo and Behold, Reveries of the Connected World will premiere at the London Film Festival this October – and, in a first for the festival, will simultaneously be available to stream live online.
The film’s premiere will take place on 13th October at Picturehouse Central in London. Hosted by distributor Dogwoof, the film will be followed by a Q&A with Werner Herzog, which will be satellite broadcast to over 60 participating cinemas across the UK and Ireland.
Lo and Behold sees the Oscar-nominated documentarian chronicle the virtual world from its origins to its outermost reaches, exploring the digital landscape with the same curiosity and imagination he previously trained on earthly destinations as disparate as the Amazon, the Sahara, the South Pole and the Australian outback. Herzog leads viewers on a journey through a series of provocative conversations that reveal the ways in which the online world has transformed how virtually everything in the real world works – from business to education, space travel to healthcare, and the very heart of how we conduct our personal relationships.
Fittingly, Herzog fans will be able to walk down the red carpet and enjoy the film from their own computer: in a first for both the distributor and the BFI London Film Festival, and with the support of a National Lottery award through the BFI’s Distribution Fund, the film will have a simultaneous virtual premiere.
Tickets will be available to purchase to watch both the film and Q&A live online from anywhere within the UK and Ireland.
Dogwoof will later release the movie theatrically across the UK on 28th October. Tickets for the film’s virtual premiere will go on sale on 15th September. For more information, see www.loandbeholdfilm.co.uk.
