For anyone who has seen a Werner Herzog film, his voice isn’t something you’ll soon forget. Now the director is bringing that authoritative voice, and storytelling prowess, to brand new subject: technology.

Herzog’s latest film is called Lo and Behold: Reveries Of The Connected World and it’ll premiere this week at the 2016 Sundance Film Festival. Deadline has posted the first trailer, which you can see right here.

Connectivity, artificial intelligence, robotics—these are all incredibly ripe topics for Herzog to explore in this day and age. Along the way he’s got interviews with Elon Musk, Bob Kahn and many others to try and figure out exactly where this all is going.


One important note about the film though, is that it’s produced by Netscout, a major tech company, which—having not seen it—makes the film sound like it may have, you know, some fish to fry. But, we’ll hear more once it premieres at Sundance.
