Default 3penny kino - Ep3 Adam Curtis Doc - tonight 8pm Free

ThreePenny Kino – Episode 3 "All Watched Over by Machines of Loving Grace, Director Adam Curtis" Wednesday November 6th Oct 8pm

The Three-Penny Kino Film Programme for every Wednesday in November at 8pm!

Join us in Solidarity Books on Wednesday November 6th for an 8pm showing of Episode 3 our first November film "All Watched Over by Machines of Loving Grace, Director Adam Curtis"

Film description follows :

all watched over my machines of loving grace

after the success of episode 1 and 2 last week, we'll finish it with the last episode!
a 2011 BBC documentary by filmmaker Adam Curtis. The series argues that computers have failed to liberate humanity and instead have "distorted and simplified our view of the world around us".
in the first episode, it is explained how the new computer technology, cybernetics, and the philosophies of Ayan Rand helped shape the modern economy. the second episode explained how the same technology and the myth of a natural balance (old ecology) gave birth to new ideas of freedom and social balance, and like the first episode, without the interference of a government.

the third episode 'the monkey in the machine, and the machine in the monkey'

This programme looked into the Selfish gene theory which holds that humans are machines controlled by genes which was invented by William Hamilton. Adam Curtis also covered the source of ethnic conflict that was created by Belgian colonialism's artificial creation of a racial divide and the ensuing slaughter that occurred in the Democratic Republic of the Congo, which is a source of raw material for computers and cell phones.

All welcome, entry is Free and donations are appreciated. As always, books, t-shirts, badges or Zapatista coffee can all be purchased on the night.
