Film debate: Science fiction and technology: can we still dream?
Cinéma UGC de Talence
Don't we want to be optimistic anymore? To hear stories of forward-looking cities and ideal societies? This is the dark side of the tales of anticipation, the "dystopia", which for the past few decades has occupied a predominant place in our reading and on our screens. Flying cars and space utopias are no more: technologies, robotics and artificial intelligence are becoming frightening. Is this the translation of a growing "technophobia"? Far from being so simple, our relationship with technology flirts as much with the search for comfort, the belief in a life-saving innovation as it does with a certain dependency and fear of misuse. What should we think about this? What future should we design? Can science fiction help us?
