Archive for October, 2009

WE LIVE IN PUBLIC Opens in Austin, TX This Weekend!

Thursday, October 8th, 2009

We are coming to the Alamo Drafthouse Cinema for our Texan theatrical run, beginning Friday October 9th!
Thanks for the warm welcome, Austin Chronicle!  Check out their review:

The Austin Chronicle
“Timoner, who also directed the now-classic rocker doc Dig!, makes a bold and trenchant argument, via Harris’ pseudomorphically perverse life, that we are all now “slaves to little boxes,” and it’s true, Tweetpeeps, isn’t it? [4 STARS] “

Director Ondi Timoner will be at the Friday and Saturday night shows for post-screening Q+As.  Come out and bring your friends if you are in the neighborhood and make sure to tell your Austin-based friends about us!


We Love You Too, SF Bay Guardian

Thursday, October 1st, 2009

The San Francisco Bay Guardian had some kind words to say about our documentary to mark the theatrical release of our film in their fair city. Check out the piece that just ran:

San Francisco Bay Guardian
“Documentarian Ondi Timoner (2004′s DiG!) turns her camera on a longtime acquaintance, internet pioneer Josh Harris, as talented and maddening a subject as DiG! trainwreck Anton Newcombe… Fascinating…”

It has been a lovefest between WE LIVE IN PUBLIC and the SFBG for awhile now.  Look at this rave review in the lead-up to our 2009 Sundance Grand Jury win!

We Live in Public, directed by Ondi Timoner
Fascinatingly addictive, this follow up to Timoner’s cult classic Dig! (which won the Sundance Grand Jury Prize in 2004) follows the bi-polar exploits of Internet pioneer Josh Harris. This man predicted every single step of the internet and the jaw dropping footage of his “experiments” are here to prove it. In 1999 he created a quasi-cult community in the basement of New York, in which people were given pods to sleep in, free food, drugs, and all night raves while every move was being recorded and shared. Even now, the uncompromising footage has the power to warp the viewer into his Orwellian vision of the future. But wait — that’s not all: Harris then goes on to rig 32 motion-sensor cameras in his house, creating the first website to stream his and girlfriend’s every life moment. I can’t express enough how awesome this film is, or how horrifyingly revealing of where our own society has headed. You wanna talk about the film of Sundance ’09? Look no further.

Come see us at the Roxie, SF.  Starts tomorrow Oct. 2nd.  BUY TICKETS HERE

Vancouver International Film Festival
Masterfully incorporating a decade’s worth of footage, Timoner assembles a constantly riveting and often harrowing portrait of the one-time “Warhol of the Web”… Timoner’s investigation into Harris’ past exploits couldn’t be more timely.”
