Now into a second century of both cinema and psychoanalysis, the state of the world, and culture as a whole, appear to be slipping into a "Military Entertainment Complex" and maybe it's time to ask: "What are we doing in there?!"

The Transmigration of Cinema is a screening program ranging from art flix to mainstream movies to guerrilla media to ubiquitous online effluvium, all presented in an open forum theater as an interactive and self-diagnostic application that will tell us if we are still connected to human consciousness, and how might we still access a liveable "Operating System" based on un-programmed desires, community and individuation.

The XL Terrestrials, a team of unlicensed psycho-media analysts and illegitimate art practitioners from San Francisco, Berlin and beyond, present this cinematic, theatrical and ecological examination of movies, mass media, the internet, and You, the human species, in the midst of an epic-scale VIRTUAL MIGRATION.

Recently back from their "Psychomedia Capital" tours in SoCal and eastern Europe and Balkan region research expeditions, the XL Terrestrials bring their show to San Francisco with an incredible collection of "no border" cinema in combination with strategies for disengaging the "OS - Spectacle 2.0" in times of war, hypermarkets, and virtual cul de sacs.
