A feature film by Antero Alli
Antero will be at the Hall in person to talk about his film

This audacious cyber-noir suspense drama takes place underground in San Francisco, 2012. An urban tribe of techno-pagans practice their ecstatic rites in a virtual reality program when one of them unexpectedly goes blind and another uses the device as a suicide machine. The law intervenes and a fundamentalist Christian prosecutor portrays the tribe in the media as a satanic suicide cult. This is only the beginning. Through surprise twists and turns, a cyber-noir witch hunt unfolds to reveal a deeper story of love and redemption. There's no mistaking that this futuristic film will demand your brainpower and full attention. It questions our over-reliance on gadgets and God; it assaults many basic contemporary liberties, coming too close for comfort. It sheds a disturbing light on the mass-hypnotic-narcotic programming that we are all subliminally subjected to. It's a complex work that aims to the highest denominator and pays off in a triumph of spirit. This exciting film is exceedingly well produced, a vision for those of us mired in everyday reality.

Before and after the film, everyone's invited to indulge in our Humanist Tea House
