Sundance documentary competition entry Connected: An Autoblogography about Love, Death & Technology is to be distributed in the US by Paladin.

The film will open in San Francisco in September and expand to other major markets, including New York and Los Angeles, through the autumn.

In the film, director Tiffany Shlain explores connections between such major issues as the environment, consumerism, population growth, technology, human rights and the global economy while searching for her place in the world.

Connected received the Women In Film Award from National Geographic’s All Roads Film Project at Sundance. Produced by The Moxie Institute and Impact Partners, the film was acquired at the festival for international distribution by ro*co films.
