Cinema Orange | Sneak Preview of Dreams Rewired

Sneak preview of the documentary film composed of rare archival materials from over 200 films, directed by Manu Luksch, Martin Reinhart, and Thomas Tode; and narrated by Tilda Swinton. Presented in partnership with Newport Beach Film Festival. There will be a food truck onsite for dining options.

Presented in conjunction with R. Luke DuBois: Now, Dreams Rewired traces the desires and anxieties of today's hyper-connected world back more than a hundred years, when telephone, film, and television were new. As revolutionary then as contemporary social media is today, early electric media sparked a fervent utopianism in the public imagination -- promising total communication, the annihilation of distance, an end to war. But then, too, there were fears over the erosion of privacy, security, morality. Using rare (and often unseen) archival material from nearly 200 films to articulate the present, Dreams Rewired reveals a history of hopes to share, and betrayals to avoid.
