Film and Media Screening Series: Teknolust by Lynn Hershman Leeson
April 4, 2017 at 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm
In this science fiction drama Tilda Swinton plays fours parts, including Rosetta Stone, a bio-geneticist who downloads her own DNA and combines it with a computer software to produce three Self Replicating Automatons (SRAs) who rely on sperm to survive. Unfortunately, they leave the males they seduce with a strange virus that overtakes both their bodies and their computers. Teknolust addresses cyber-identity, artificial intelligence, from a feminist perspective. Directed by Lynn Hershman Leeson, this film won the Feature Film Prize in Science and Technology at the Hamptons International Film Festival in 2002. Note: Leeson will no longer be able to attend the screening.
The Film and Media Screening Series is supported by the Diversity Council, the Student-Faculty Corporation, the School of Liberal Arts, the Department of Film, Media and Performing Arts, and the Department of Modern Languages and Cultures.
All screenings are free and open to the public.
