Almost Real: Connecting in a Wired World

In a decade, the Internet has transformed the economy and employment and has re-defined the essence of how people conceive of communications and personal relationships. This documentary looks at the end of the first phase of the Internet - a far less utopian age than some had hoped. Focusing on six individuals for whom the Internet has become a lifeline, the film questions how the World Wide Web has transformed the sense of community. 2002. 46 min.
