So I'm at lunch with this really good friend of mine and we are having a fantastic time, I haven't seen her in years. We're laughing, drinking, talking, but I'm still getting this urge to check my e-mail. And I was like Tiffany stay focused, you traveled all the way across The United States to see her, stay focused. But eventually it was like, it over took me, and then I fake needing to go the bathroom. So I excuse myself, grab my phone, go into the bathroom stall, kind of hiding, texting, e-mailing, thinking - What have I become? I can't be the only one sneaking to the bathroom to check my e-mail. Technology is clearly changing us. And the way we connect with our friends, our families, and the world around us. So I set out to make a film about what it means to be connected in The Twenty-First Century. Things are changing. There's so much more to think about. And that pace of change is only accelerating. How much faster can it go before we can't keep up? This was the kind of question I was exploring in this film. And then I had this year that turned my world upside down. And forced me to rethink everything I thought I understood about the ways we're connected. We as humans have accumulated so much knowledge. Why do we have such a hard time seeing the bigger picture?

The award-winning documentary “Connected: An Autoblogography about Love, Death & Technology,” offers an exhilarating stream-of-consciousness ride through the interconnectedness of humankind, nature, progress and morality at the dawn of the 21st century. With insight, curiosity, and humor, the film weaves both a personal and global story about interdependence. For centuries we’ve been declaring independence, this film asks if perhaps it’s time to declare our interdependence instead.
