Are We There Yet?: A Retrospective Of The Future

Free Tickets

The shows in this strand are free but ticketed. Free tickets will only be available on the day from GFT, when the box office opens at 10am. First come, first served (maximum 2 tickets per person).

The 2020 retrospective invites audience to go back to the future with a collection of dystopian classics that offer bold visions of the way ahead for humanity. Are We There Yet?: A Retrospective Of The Future celebrates a collection of startlingly prescient films that gazed into a crystal ball and glimpsed a time where artificial intelligence has begun to develop a mind of its own, where climate change and scarce resources threaten the survival of our species, intelligent apes might rule over humans and real strawberry jam has become a heartrending reminder of all that has been lost. There is a film each morning, screened free of charge and open to everyone with a short introduction to set the scene. The ten titles range from firm favourites like Westworld and Planet Of The Apes alongside rare chances to catch Stalker and The Day The Earth Caught Fire on the big screen. An unmissable opportunity to witness how cinema has depicted the shape of things to come.
