Revolution of the Present brings together international philosophers, scientists, artists and business leaders to give description and analysis to the contemporary moment as defined by networks. The film looks at the histories of thought, of nationhood, of mapping, being, and love, of consciousness and appetite, framing them as a series of networks, intersecting, overlapping, colliding at all angles and speeds.
Interviewees include: Wendy Chun, Florian Cramer, Cathy N. Davidson, Manuel deLanda, James Delbourgo, Alex Galloway, Michael Hardt, Natalie Jeremijenko, Greg Lindsay, Geert Lovink, Anthony Pagden, Saskia Sassen, Nushant Shah, and Kazys Varnelis.
