“We Live in Public”. It’s an apt tagline for our times, and the title of Ondi Timoner’s Sundance Grand Jury Prize winning documentary which premieres in New York on April 5th.

The film captures the heyday of internet pioneer Josh Harris, who amongst other things founded the world’s first web TV network, Pseudo.com. “We Live in Public” documents a series of strange performance art experiments that explored, in extreme ways, what it meant to live in full scrutiny of the whole world, all the time. For more, watch the film’s trailer below.
