The documentary film Lo and Behold, Reveries of the Connected World, is a tangle of interviews by leading technology developers pointing to a disorientation in a software-oriented world. Herzog explores how the future will look alongside fast-evolving and adapting programmes and devices, within a perspective on the technology development and its past. The film includes interviews with leaders from the world of new technologies, such as Bob Kahn, Elon Musk, Sebastian Thrun, and Ted Nelson.
