THE DRIVETIME

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

Take time to time-travel in filmmaker Antero Alli's cyber-fi film! This riveting film follows a bemused time-traveling librarian named "Flux" from the serenity of 2023 back to the chaos of Seattle in 1999, where he uncovers video footage from a riot that triggered the city's collapse. Our society's obsession with communications technology created the near-extinction of conversation. On top of this jolting social examination, this film moves viewers to think about where our world is heading. This work should be seen by anyone who believes that all is calm and well in our little digital sphere. One of the most chilling yet innovative cinematic essays on the flaws of today's technology-obsessed society.

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