scifiinterfaces presents: STRANGE DAYS on 35mm
December 30 only
Looking to see a dark, disturbing New Year’s Eve themed science fiction film in San Francisco just before 2015 ends? Who isn’t? On December 30th, come to the Roxie Theater to join Chris Noessel, Design Fellow at Cooper, keeper of scifiinterfaces.com, and the co-author of “Make It So: Interaction Design Lessons from Science Fiction” for a viewing of Strange Days: a twisted, recursive, techno-serial-killer brain-interface thriller. The movie was written by TERMINATOR great James Cameron, Scorsese-compadre Jay Cocks, and features an all star cast led by Ralph Fiennes as the anti-hero Lenny Nero and Angela Bassett as “Mace” Mason, whose performance won her a Saturn award for Best Actress. The film also earned director Kathryn Bigelow (POINT BREAK, THE HURT LOCKER) a Saturn for best director.
It’s neither available on Blu-ray or for streaming in the US, so you won’t want to miss this rare 35mm presentation. If you thought BRAINSTORM’s anti-corporate take on telexperience tech lacked bite, you will want to see this take on what telexperience tech would mean to psychopaths.
For those familiar with prior scifiinterfaces movie nights, this is a LONG movie, and so there will be only the briefest of introduction presentations.
1995, 146 minutes, 35mm
