Lo and Behold out in Theaters and On Demand via iTunes and Amazon on August 19

Werner Herzog, renown German filmmaker and documentarian, goes into deep exploration with the technologic advancements such as the Internet, artificial intelligence, and intergalactic travel with a new film Lo and Behold.

The Oscar-nominated Herzog, interviews and examines NetScout, a world leader in realtime service assurance and cybersecurity. He also visits with Elon Musk at SpaceX.

Lo and Behold originally premiered at the 2016 Sundance Film Festival, and received a warm reception.

Herzog and Musk create a comical atmosphere within their conversation. The exchange between the two displays some of the technologic advancements in space exploration, but more importantly, showcases Herzog’s strong desire to explore Mars himself. I love Herzog’s work, but I would not be interested watching him film red dust and rocks on an empty planet. My suggestion, stick to filming and documenting this planet. It needs our help and attention more than planets with no people and tons of rock.

Herzog continues to want to expand his filmmaking career, but I find that film is not as much about the location, instead rather, the story behind the people in the film that I find to be valuable storytelling.

The film is currently screening in select cities including: Columbus, Knoxville, Atlanta, Dallas, Houston, Los Angeles, New York City, San Francisco, Salt Lake City, Philadelphia, and many more.
