The time: tomorrow. The place: Our own world, with Artificial Intelligence added.

They have all the time in the world…

Reviews

“A contemplative, intimate and poetic chamber piece, superbly told and nimbly acted, with equal parts nuance and empathy” – TheWrap.

“Beautiful truths and half truths abound in Michael Almereyda’s quietly shimmering new movie”- LA Times.

“There’s more going on in this movie’s 90-plus minutes than in many summer blockbusters nearly twice its length” – NY Times.

Sundance Festival Award winner, Sloan Prize for Science or Technology in a Feature Film.

COMING IN DECEMBER – 11TH ANNUAL SHORT SHORT STORY FILM FESTIVAL AT CINEMA 320

The Short Short Story Film Festival highlights some of the world’s best “short-short” independent films, all of which tell a story in under six minutes. This competitive festival is produced by Rhode Island’s MergingArts Productions. This year marks its 11th edition, returning to Worcester on December 2nd at Cinema 320, having screened to an enthusiastic audience there last year.

The Heartstrings program, which screens at 2:30 pm and 6:30 pm, explores films of a more sentimental nature – comic, romantic, or tragic. The Headtrip program, screening at 4:30 pm and 8:30 pm, presents weirder and more off-center films, from black comedies to thrillers to head-scratchers.

The festival includes audience voting for their favorite films in each program, with DJ Madame B mixing soundscapes before and between screenings to a backdrop of a slideshow introduction to festival filmmakers.
