Bernard Parmegiani - L'Ecran transparent/The Transparent Screen (1973)

'This is why the electronic human lives faster and faster....Every morning he has information, information, information...And this crazy environment full of images and sounds builds a screen around him. And only those who know how to remain deaf or blind will be able to escape the screen...'

As you can tell by the quote above Bernard Parmegiani's film predicts our current screen-dominated environment. He wasn't the first to suggest the future domination of electronic audio-visual content over our willingly subservient modern brains, of course. But he was Bernard Parmegiani and it's his vision, his music, which makes it brilliant.
