Thursday #edcmooc

What message is the film presenting about technology? What losses and gains are described? Who or what has ‘agency’ in this film?

In my opinion, the message about technology is that it’s more and more  envolving and surround people. The bird (representing the nature) seems to be desperate to call humans' attention, it tries to say: “Please. Look at me! I exist. I’m here!”

In such technological world, people are so into technology that they lose many opportunities, they seem to be lost without technology. People live so focused on electronic gadgets that they don’t pay attention in  simple, beautiful and natural things, like a bird.

  1. That's very true! A brief and very just comment on the film. I had a pretty much the same feeling about it. I aslo read in another blog that this film in some way suggests that the natural world makes more effort to reconnect with the humans then they would go for while being much more concentrated on technological development. Isn't that an interesting point?
