Series site

Imagine a science-fiction film series with no space travel, no alien invasions or monsters, and no visions of the distant future. Imagine instead a dazzling array of science-fiction films that focus on alternate visions of Earth in the present or very near future.

[...] Presented in association with the Berlinale and the Deutsche Kinemathek-Museum für Film und Fernsehen, this exhibition of more than 40 science-fiction films from all over the world—the United States, the Soviet Union, China, India, Cameroon, Mexico and beyond—explores the second question: our humanity in all its miraculous, uncanny, and perhaps ultimately unknowable aspects.[...]

Guest presenters include John Sayles, Michael Almereyda, Larry Fessenden, Lynn Hershman Leeson, and more.—MoMA
