Thursday, November 3: Alphaville
introduced by Richard Neupert (Theatre & Film) & Aaron Meskin (Philosophy)
In Alphaville (1965), viewers are launched into a world where every word and thought is controlled by the Alpha 60 supercomputer, and hard-boiled special agent Lemmy Caution (Eddie Constantine) arrives in his Ford Galaxie to rescue a mysterious woman (Anna Karina) and counter the computer’s logic with poetry and love. Jean-Luc Godard’s Art House Science Fiction film Alphaville won the Golden Bear at the Berlin International Film Festival. The introduction and discussion of this film will be presented by Dr. Richard Neupert and Dr. Aaron Meskin on November 3rd.
