Dir. Alex Garland (UK 2015, 108mins 15)
Alex Garland’s directorial debut is a fine Sci-fi thriller that won many awards. Full of ideas about artificial intelligence clothed in the excellent special effects of the android (Alicia Vikander in a great performance) that is under scrutiny in the home of its billionaire inventor.
Followed by a presentation by Dr Stephen Dorril (University of Huddersfield) and debate on – where are the jet cars, the space-age clothes and the end of work we were promised? Why didn’t the future arrive? And will it ever?
