Modern technology has achieved a degree of sophistication beyond our wildest dreams. The price has been exacted by this technology. We live in a time of stress. We are the victims of our own technological strength. This isn't a quote from a Huffington Post column on the Facebookization of modern communication. It's not from a book about post-industrial existence. This statement was made in the 1972 documentary Future Shock, which is still current in its depictions of the concerns and anxieties that come along with rapid societal and technological change. The Indiana University libraries have a moving image archive.
Future Shock is a 1972 American short documentary film directed by Alex Grasshoff and narrated by Orson Welles. It was screened at the 1973 Cannes Film Festival, but wasn't entered into the main competition. It is based on the 1970 book of the same name by Alvin Toffler.
