The Digital Revolutionaries

Running time 67′

Co-curated by the artist Tabor Robak and David Gryn, this program will address the unearthly reverberations of the Internet, gaming, and digital magical-realism. The evening will conclude with a tribute to the seminal filmmaker Harun Farocki, whose work Parallel II (2012) examines the uncanny visual world-making of digital gaming.
