Science Fiction combines imagination with technological advances, allowing us to reflect on our present in a profound way. Discontinuities is a series of 5 standout films in the genre and a collection of critical perspectives from local journalists, scholars, artists, and film lovers.The films being presented, Gattaca (1997), Nineteen Eighty-Four (1984), Children of Men (2009), Moon (2009), and Sunshine (2007) and the essays that accompany them weave together a discussion of technology, society, art as only Science Fiction can.
Passes to the film series are $25. A pass allows you to attend as few as 1 or as many as all 5 films in Discontinuities and includes a printed collection of all of the essays written about the films. The films are presented as a series, so we are encourage attending at least two screenings (each followed by a panel discussion). We have a limit of 40 passes to due to R&D's capacity. If you love science fiction, film, or both, we hope you'll join us for this unique, critical filmgoing experience.
