THE BIODIGITAL CONTINUUM: Rebounding Digital Democracy

Tuesday, January 29, 11:30 a.m.–1:00 p.m.
The Box at The Ray, 1768 Park Ave.

Plugged into our phones 24/7 is not a good look for any of us. But becoming technological teetotalers is not a practical option, as digital platforms continuously aid and abet our thoughts, needs, and even our identities. Join economist Douglas Rushkoff (Throwing Rocks at the Google Bus, Team Human), filmmaker/author Tiffany Shlain (Connected; founder, the Webby Awards), and filmmaker Jehane Noujaim (The Great Hack, The Square) in a high-tech fireside chat as they explore the relationship between digital platforms, democracy, and what it means to be a member of the human species.

As you use our Online Archives, please understand that the information presented from Festivals, Labs, and other activities is taken directly from official publications from each year. While this information is limited and doesn't necessarily represent the full list of participants (e.g. actors and crew), it is the list given to us by the main film/play/project contact at the time, based on the space restrictions of our publications. Each entry in the Online Archives is meant as a historical record of a particular film, play, or project at the time of its involvement with Sundance Institute. For this reason, we can only amend an entry if a name is misspelled, or if the entry does not correctly reflect the original publication.
