ATA Gallery's OTHER CINEMA proudly presents:

SAT. 9/10: THE NET: UNABOMBER, LSD, AND THE INTERNET
At last, the North American premiere of Lutz Dammbeck’s The Net, the first in-depth exploration of the Unabomber back-story. Slow and assured, but utterly stunning in its revelations, this philosopher’s stone of a movie retraces the responses of the Counterculture to cybernetics. For those who resist these intrusive systems of technological control, the Unabomber has perhaps come to symbolize an ultimate figure of Refusal. For those that embrace it, as did and do the early champions of media art like Marshall McLuhan, Nam Jun Paik, and Stewart Brand, the promises of worldwide networking and instantaneous communication outweighed the perils. Told as a travel journal, Dammbeck’s conceptual quest circles through themes of utopianism, anarchism, terrorism, CIA, MK-ULTRA, LSD, Tim Leary, Ken Kesey and the Merry Pranksters, and of course, the history of the Internet. Note special show times: 8 and 10pm. $5
