About The Event
THIS PROGRAM FEATURES THE FOLLOWING FILMS:
Dir. Jeppe Lange
A sequence of 10,000 images found through Google’s reverse image search: a primal chaos before the creation of an artificial consciousness: A.I. And the awakening consciousness is looking back at us as a species.
Dir. Davide Pellino Italy (in English)
A haunting depiction of various aspects of our society, an abstract vision exploring the ideas behind privacy, social media, and consumerism. Each one of us is both an architect of and a pawn in this system, but is there a way to unplug from the cycle?
Dir. Brian Zahm
In a world with automated everything, A.I. MOVIE app makes the film for you! Watch this to learn how you can be showered in the Oscars’ golden glory!
Dir. Sijia Luo
By exploring the possibilities of combining A.I.-generated content with hand-drawn 2D animation, “Be Gone” tells the story of a mobile phone that experiences the plight of modern society in a serendipitous epiphany, learning what it means to be human between life and death.
Dir. Céline Ufenast
An experimental short about our love-hate relationship with Instagram and our editing habits. Based on first-hand experiences collected through interviews, “@Scroll_Alice” is a virtual conversation about our “social-mania” and a denial of its effects on our mental health.
Dir. Asuka Lin
A young programmer attempts to resurrect their lost mother by coding an A.I. that can input past memories. Shot handheld on raw black and white Super 8, this frenetic live-action and animated film crescendos into a cathartic collapse of the binaries of mother and child, creator and creation.
Dir. Michael Hofmann
An exploration of a parallel world of artificial intelligence and generative transmissions of life from estuarine ecosystems as a metaphor for synthesis. This multi-layered experience culminates in the emergence of macro- and microcosmic amalgamations emblematic of systems teeming with life.
Dir. Andre LeBlanc
A computer designed to flag violent internet content starts creating its own material, in which its inventors are the subjects.
This Desolate Shore
Dir. Chris Peters
An A.I.’s interpretation of the work of Jean-Luc Godard.
Dir. Nathan Crooker USA
A look at the body dysmorphic disorder through the eyes of Beth, an insecure 20-something, obsessed with an insidious filter, leaving her to question true beauty.
