Beyond Human Film Season



Share:  FacebookTwitter

This August, we present a new film season that questions what it means to be human. Inspired by the thought-provoking works of artist LuYang (on display until 17 September), Beyond Human delves into themes of identity, technology, and the human condition. This season includes screenings of After Yang (2021), Inuyashiki (2018) and Karmalink (2018), each showcasing a unique perspective that invites us to reflect on the nature of our existence and the interconnectedness of our lives.

Prepare to be captivated, challenged, and inspired as we transcend binary understandings of the human mind and body and contemplate the boundless possibilities of existence in an ever-changing world.



Tue 8 Aug, 19:00

In the near future, a family grapples with feelings of love, connection, and loss after their A.I. helper unexpectedly breaks down. When his young daughter’s beloved companion — an android named Yang (Justin H. Min) — malfunctions, Jake (Colin Farrell) searches for a way to repair him. In the process, Jake discovers the life that has been passing in front of him, reconnecting with his wife (Jodie Turner-Smith) and daughter (Malea Emma Tjandrawidjaja) across a distance he didn’t know was there. Written, directed, and edited by Kogonada (Columbus, Pachinko).

Are humans inherently good or evil? A blinding light in the night sky and an alien encounter gifts Inuyashiki Ichirou, an office worker, with alien technology and limitless powers. After being down on his luck, it turns out that these strange, new changes are just what Ichirou needs to take a new lease on life and now it seems like there's nothing to stop him from being a hero worthy of the respect that he never had before... unless there was someone else out there who also experienced similar changes...
