Tilda Swinton takes us on a dense, poetic journey through the history of connectivity – from radio, the phonograph, movies, television, and the telephone to today’s digital age. Drawing upon nearly 200 films made between the 1880s and 1930s, the film is an amazing collage of the scientific, dramatic, educational, erotic, experimental, and political. Rare archival materials share screen time with clips from Eisenstein’s BATTLESHIP POTEMKIN, Dreyer’s VAMPYR and movies by Thomas Edison, Dziga Vertov, Hans Richter, Walter Rutmann, René Clair, Louis Feuillade, Rudy Burckhardt, and the great silent comic masters. Melding fantasy and fact, this treasure trove of brilliantly selected bits and pieces cumulatively tells the story of technology’s inexorable march into the 21st century.
