Relaxed Screening – A Glitch in the Matrix – intro and discussion @ BFI, London
May 22 @ 8:00 pm
A Glitch in the Matrix
+ intro and discussion
A fascinating exploration of the possibility that the world we live in is a digital construct.
Nick Bostrom, Philip K. Dick, Joshua Cooke
USA 2021. 108min
Simulation theory, or the concept that reality is in fact an artificial simulation, is central to Rodney Ascher’s head-spinning foray into virtual worlds. Utilising a blend of archive footage and interviews with internet theorists, A Glitch in the Matrix sends viewers tumbling down the rabbit hole in exploring the outermost frontiers of human perception.
This screening is the first in a series of two events in partnership with Citizen Autistic – The London Autism Film Club. The second event will be Under the Skin + intro and discussion on Monday 26 June.
The post screening discussion will be hosted by Benjamin Brown.
Relaxed screenings are presented each month for those in the neurodiverse community and their assistants and carers. More detailed information can be found at bfi.org.uk/relaxed.
