'The global village' and 'the medium is the message' are among the most quoted phrases of our time. Now, over twenty years after his death, in the midst of an era of Internet, virtual and wired technologies, McLuhan's Wake explores the enduring truth of McLuhan's message.
Grounded in McLuhan's last scholarly work, The Laws of Media, MCLUHAN'S WAKE is a visually dazzling and poetic film, translating these laws into an illuminating and revealing text, haunted by archival footage and the voice of McLuhan himself.
Includes commentary by scholars Eric McLuhan, Neil Postman, Lewis Lapham and journalist Patrick Watson.
