Documentary explores the effects of being wired

Connected, a documentary by Webby Awards founder Tiffany Shlain, explores the global implications for being wired in the 21st Century.

The film, which took four years to make and partly focuses on Ms Shlain's connection with her dying father, attempts to explain the underpinnings of why humans choose to connect with one another through technology.

The film is now being played at select theatres in the US.

After exchanging a series of roughly 30 emails with Ms Shlain and her production staff, the BBC's Matt Danzico spoke to the film-maker about the broader implications of staying wired to the internet.
