121 min | dir. Lutz Dammbeck | NR | 2003

Director Lutz Dammbeck in person. Free and open to the public. Amherst Cinema Members can reserve free tickets online. Non-Members, please visit our box office for tickets.

This compelling and provocative documentary explores how modern technology influences social relationships, affects people’s minds and potentially replaces reality with virtual realities. It interweaves excerpts from an exchange of letters between the director and Ted Kaczynski with interviews with leading American eyewitnesses, including New York publisher John Brockman, American writer and co-creator of the Whole World Catalog Steward Brand and physicist and philosopher Heinz von Foerster.

Supported by the DEFA Film Library and German & Scandinavian Studies at UMass Amherst.
