>GO TO: MENTAL MADNESS repertory series @ Brattle Theater(3/6-3/13)



from the Brattle Theater website:

In celebration of the upcoming performances of Tod Machover’s “robot opera” Death and the Powers, we’re presenting this series of inspired and inspiring sci-fi films that features computers and robots acting outside of their programmed parameters. Starting with the all-time classic 2001: A SPACE ODYSSEY, this series also features a rarely screened 70s film (DEMON SEED), an overlooked animated classic (IRON GIANT), a remarkable screen debut (MOON), and more! In addition, we host a special evening on March 11 featuring a conversation with members of the Death and the Powers creative crew and a screening of the recent, much-lauded ‘reboot’ of BATTLESTAR GALACTICA.
