Talking Technophobia in Film
A Film Class Discussion
“Be afraid. Be very afraid.” From the very beginning, Hollywood movies have offered a frightening reflection of our deep fear of technology, its effects, and sinister implications. Time-traveling terminators, resurrected dinosaurs, alien invasions, and virtual prisons all give us a sense of just how terrified Hollywood writers, directors, and producers think we are (or should be).
In this class we will investigate popular, pivotal movies and discuss their fears, warnings, and possible solutions to this ever-increasing cultural technophobia. Discussion topics will include: “the mad scientist and you,” “ghosts in the machines,” “malfunctioning machinations,” “risks and rewards,” and “the power of human ingenuity.”
Talking Technophobia in Film is a film discussion class. It’s like a book club, but for film nerds who like talking about society in relation to movie plots. It’s led by Film Buff/YouTube Addict/(Actual Teacher) @ProfessorMovies.
In the Second Season of this class, we will investigate some of the popular and pivotal films of Stanley Kubrick and discuss the fears, warnings, and possible solutions to the ever-increasing cultural technophobia found in his work.
So if you are a Film/Pop-culture Buff and like talking about movies, then you should join the class! It’s streamed live on Facebook, so international film nerds can join in too!
