This summer, FilmBar and ASU's Center for Science and the Imagination are going back to the future. Admission includes a complimentary small popcorn and $1 off your first drink!
This second installment of The History of the Future film series rounds up another set of delightfully schlocky, thought-provoking films from decades past. With introductions and comments from scholars and experts, we'll examine stories about the future from the 1970s, 1980s, and 1990s and think about how accurate those visions turned out to be.
Nada (Roddy Piper), a wanderer without meaning in his life, discovers a pair of sunglasses capable of showing the world the way it truly is. As he walks the streets of Los Angeles, Nada notices that both the media and the government are comprised of subliminal messages meant to keep the population subdued, and that most of the social elite are skull-faced aliens bent on world domination. With this shocking discovery, Nada fights to free humanity from the mind-controlling aliens.
