WE LIVE IN PUBLIC Gets More Acclaim From Roger Ebert

Wednesday, December 30th, 2009

Happy holidays!
As the end of the year approaches and journalists compile their best-of-year (and best-of-decade)  lists, we’ve been excited to see WE LIVE IN PUBLIC get a lot of nods from various people who *clearly* have excellent taste.   One of our favorite reviews from the past year came from legendary film critic Roger Ebert, who gave us a four star review in October.  We are thrilled to be a part of his year-end round-up of the best docs of 2009, alongside some other amazing docs including TYSON, THE SEPTEMBER ISSUE, and ANVIL! THE STORY OF ANVIL.

“Josh Harris… was a myopic visionary, a man who saw the future more vividly than his own life… Filmmaker Ondi Timoner was on the scene from the start… Fascinating.”

Have a fun and safe New Year’s Eve and we’ll catch you next year!

Roger Ebert recently raved in the Sun-Times, “This is a remarkable film about a strange and prophetic man.  [4 STARS]“  And just today, the Washington Post writes, “The title of Ondi Timoner’s Sundance award-winning documentary about the loss of privacy in the Internet age says it all: “We Live in Public.” Don’t believe it? Just try Googling “Tiger Woods” or “Michaele Salahi…”

Tell your DC-area friends!  Woo!

(800) 223 4700


We’ve received a warm welcome from Ohio journalists. describes the film as “…a journey through the life of dot-com entrepreneur Josh Harris, a wily wheeler-dealer who went from boom to bust, sacrificing privacy for his trenchant narcissism….  It’s great when a documentary can make us stop, catch our breath and really take notice of the weird world around us.  In this case, our ever-exposed, constant-contact, Facebook, MySpace, streaming, Skypeing, Twittering, texting lives… WE LIVE IN PUBLIC is a hoot!”

See you this weekend, Ohioans!

WLIP Returns to Park City, Utah for Sundance Institute Screening

Wednesday, December 2nd, 2009

We’re packing our bags and heading back to the scene of the crime, and by crime we mean Park City, Utah, home of all things Sundance.  WE LIVE IN PUBLIC, as you probably know, took the Grand Jury Award for Best Documentary at Sundance 2009 and director Ondi Timoner also won the Grand Jury Award for DIG! in 2004, making her the first filmmaker to take home the award twice in the festival’s history.  This endears them to us greatly.  We are thrilled to return to screen WE LIVE IN PUBLIC as a part of the Sundance Institute Film Series.

Wednesday, December 2
Park City Library, 7pm

In their words:

“Timoner offers a fascinating ten-year chronicle of internet pioneer Josh Harris as he launched an art experiment involving more than 100 artists living in a New York City bunker under 24-hour surveillance. Timoner couples Harris’s footage from his exhibitions with rousing vérité of her own for a sexy, yet cautionary tale where we all become Big Brother.”

Ondi will be there in person for a post-screening Q+A!
