Event description

Description

Welt am Draht* continues! As a virtual reality simulation causes more and more real-world deaths, an engineer slips further into insanity as his understanding of which world he’s in begins to blur.

Miss Part 1? Don't worry! We'll recap the first half of this Criterion Collection favorite in the previews before the show.

*Presented in German with English Subtitles.

NR (Adult Themes)


World on a Wire is a gloriously paranoid, boundlessly inventive take on the future from German wunderkind Rainer Werner Fassbinder. With dashes of Stanley Kubrick, Kurt Vonnegut, and Philip K. Dick, Fassbinder tells the noir-spiked tale of reluctant hero Fred Stiller (Klaus Löwitsch), a cybernetics engineer who uncovers a massive corporate conspiracy. At risk? (Virtual) reality as we know it." - Criterion Collection



A.I. Film Series

For decades, humans have been obsessed with creating life-like machines that look and act like real people. As technology continues to advance, artificial intelligence explored in classic films moves further away from science fiction and draws ever closer to becoming part of the real world. Join us as we present three nights of classic films that examine self-aware A.I. and the impact that technology has on its creators. We’ll also look at the current state of artificial intelligence in tech and how this industry has evolved.

Each screening will include a brief introduction along with electrolyte water and power bars.
