We all live in Marshall McLuhan's wake. Fascinated by the role technology played in transforming our lives, one of the twentieth century's most famous intellectuals realized, with stunning accuracy, the impact the digital age would have on our social, spiritual, economic and ideological selves. Grounded in McLuhan's last scholarly work, The Laws of Media, the film translates these laws into an illuminating and revealing text, haunted by archival footage and the voice of McLuhan himself. Blending all forms of media including animation and special effects, McLuhan's Wake is a visually dazzling and poetic film, with narration by renowned performance artist Laurie Anderson, and commentary by scholars Eric McLuhan, Neil Postman, Lewis Lapham and journalist Patrick Watson.
