Event Description
In the 2015 cerebral thriller Ex Machina, a programmer at an Internet search giant wins a competition to spend a week at the estate of the company’s reclusive CEO. Upon his arrival, he discovers he is tasked with evaluating the capabilities and consciousness of a new experiment in artificial intelligence—a breathtaking A.I. whose emotional intelligence proves more sophisticated and deceptive than the two men could have imagined. Running time: 108 minutes. Rated R. Screened in conjunction with Temporal Turn: Art And Speculation in Contemporary Asia.
