Fans of The Matrix will get the sense of humour being used with this virtual reality meeting and conversation with the director of this documentary Rodney Ascher and actress Felicia Day. It’s a free event for those with the Oculus’ headgear to watch in a 3D space. But for those without, a 2D version of this Q&A will be posted to Magnolia Picture’s YouTube Channel after the event.
if we are living in a simulation, and the world as we know it is not real? To tackle this mind-bending idea, acclaimed filmmaker Rodney Ascher (Room 237, The Nightmare) uses a noted speech from Philip K. Dick to dive down the rabbit hole of science, philosophy, and conspiracy theory.
Leaving no stone unturned in exploring the unprovable, the film uses contemporary cultural touchstones like The Matrix, interviews with real people shrouded in digital avatars, and a wide array of voices, expert and amateur alike. If simulation theory is not science fiction but fact, and life is a video game being played by some unknowable entity, then who are we, really? A Glitch in the Matrix attempts to find out.
