Spaces and technology: trailer of "Visitors"

TIFF festival guide description:

Presented in Black and White digital 4K projection, Visitors reveals humanity’s trancelike relationship with technology, which, when commandeered by extreme emotional states, produces massive effects far beyond the human species.

The Act of Killing (2012): representing the simulacra (brief note)

 

Werner Herzog said of The Act of Killing, "I have not seen a film as powerful, surreal, and frightening in at least a decade...it is unprecedented in the history of cinema."

Never the act of simulacra was so terrifying.
