scifiinterfaces presents: STRANGE DAYS in 35mm


December 30 only

In San Francisco and looking to see a dark, disturbing New Year’s Eve themed science fiction film just before 2015 ends? Who isn’t? On December 30th, come to the Roxie Theater to join Chris Noessel, Design Fellow at Cooper, keeper of, and the co-author of Make It So: Interaction Design Lessons from Science Fiction for a viewing of Strange Days: a twisted, recursive, techno-serial-killer brain-interface thriller. The movie was written by TERMINATOR great James Cameron, Scorsese-compadre Jay Cocks, and features an all star cast led by Ralph Fiennes as the anti-hero Lenny Nero and Angela Bassett as “Mace” Mason, whose performance won her a Saturn award for Best Actress. The film also earned director Kathryn Bigelow (POINT BREAK, THE HURT LOCKER) a Saturn for best director.

It’s neither available on Blu-ray nor for streaming in the US, so you won’t want to miss this rare 35mm presentation. If you thought Brainstorm’s anti-corporate take on telexperience tech lacked bite, you will want to see this take on what telexperience tech would mean to psychopaths. Note that it’s rated R, not really a kid’s film, here.

For those familiar with prior scifiinterfaces movie nights, this is a LONG movie, and so there will be only the briefest of introduction presentations.

1995, 146 minutes, 35mm

  1. I saw this in the theater when it came out. My buddy literally feinted during one scene and had to leave the screening. It’s that intense.
