Summer Film Series: The History of the Future — Outland
June 30, 2016
FilmBar, 815 N 2nd Street, Phoenix, AZ
Tickets are $6 apiece, and include your first drink free
In “Outland” (1981), a police marshal stationed at a remote mining colony on Jupiter’s moon Io uncovers a drug-smuggling conspiracy, and gets no help from the populace when he later finds himself marked for murder.
Science fiction films are artifacts of their times and places: they often tell us more about the hopes, values, anxieties, and prejudices of their creators than they do about how the future will actually turn out.
Join FilmBar, ASU’s Center for Science and the Imagination and a panel of scholars, technologists, and big thinkers as we examine the future through classic (and delightfully schlocky) sci-fi films from the past 40 years.
