Together with Kevin Toma, movie reviewer of De Volkskrant, we explore how movies can give us a glimpse of the future. These days, Bladerunner 2049 draws the public to the cinemas. But already in one of the first movies ever made, people were shot to the moon with a cannon. One of the greatest silent movies is Metropolis, about a future city where the haves and have-nots lead completely separated lives.
We feel a great need to imagine the future. But how exactly do filmmakers do that? Does creating science fiction also inspire them to invent new filmic means?
Together with Kevin Toma we make a time-travel through science fiction in cinema. Kevin shows us fascinating movie-scenes, some famous, some hardly known, and discusses these with us. Come, and be part of this fantastic voyage!
