Avenue for Early Adopters
Mindshare LA puts audiences ahead of the curve in experiencing the latest advances of technology and thought. On September 29, 2011 Mindshare LA offers an exclusive preview of Director Tiffany Shlain's film "Connected" before it's official LA premiere. A special pre-screening will be hosted in conjunction with the Downtown Independent Movie Theater. This vibrant, eye-opening, and inspiring film explores the visible and invisible connections linking major issues of our time - the environment, consumption, population growth, technology, human rights, and the global economy. From founding The Webby Awards to being a passionate advocate for The National Day of Unplugging, Shlain's love/hate relationship with technology serves as the springboard for a thrilling exploration of modern life.
