directed by Michael Kleiman
USA, 2013, English/Spanish, 85 minutes
For 10 months, Michael Kleiman lived with families in small villages in Peru's Andes Mountains and the Amazon Jungle as children there experienced the internet for the first time. "Web" documents how the children and their families used the new technologies, as well as the inevitable complications that arise from digital connections. "Web" considers the incredible potential born out of technological connection—including new possibilities for dialogue, cultural exchange and collaboration while also considering what is lost in the process.
