We Live In Public


Ondi Timoner’s Sundance Grand Jury Prize winning film We Live In Public premiers in NYC on April 5th during the New Directors/ New Films 2009 at MoMA. This documentary takes a look at the art/web/surveillance experiments of Josh Harris, obliterating  the line between public and private.  After doing an installation piece where over 100 participants lived in a bunker and were filmed 24/7 for the public’s internet viewing pleasure, he put his own life on display.  The film tracks the bunkers decline into chaos as well as Josh’s own unraveling. Even though the film conveys the discomfort of full disclosure, it also seems like a compelling -if not forshadwoing- tale of our changing world. Soon enough the notion of privacy will be a thing of the past.
