I Hate the Internet: Techno-Dystopian Malaise and Visions of Rebellion
Films examining themes of techno-dysphoria and our increasingly trans-humanist culture. Zach Blas’ Contra-Internet: Jubilee 2033 re-imagines scenes from Derek Jarman’s Jubilee (1978): an acid-tripping Ayn Rand bears witness to the internet’s end as Silicon Valley burns. Jesse McLean’s The Invisible World catalogs the video genres of Web 2.0 while considering our attachments to our bodies in a chillingly dematerialized future society. Mike Hoolboom’s Instructions for Robots imagines the interior lives and sexualities of a cadre of emotion-laden robots enrolled in a Cuban film school. Peter Burr’s Drop City presents a landscape of electronic melancholy while exploring the aesthetics of video games. Also screening: James Duesing’s 1990 work of computer animation Maxwell’s Demon, a similarly despairing missive from the internet’s early daze.
