Age Suitability: 18+
Join us for a special edition of CineXjenza, promoting science through TV and film. This year we will be discussing the use of Augmented Reality (AR), through screening short clips from episodes of Black Mirror. Black Mirror is a popular Netflix drama set in a postmodern world where our reliance on technology is slipping out of control. Scarily close to real life, the episodes bring us to question values, ethics and where that faint line between progress and hindrance really lies. Three episodes will be featured: Playtest, White Christmas and Men at War. Clips will be followed by open discussion led by researchers from the University of Malta who are working in this field. Prepare to have your eyes opened to the potential uses and consequences of this rapidly developing field. 18+ only.
