Gaming Race: Detroit: Become Human
Feb

6:00 PM18:00

Gaming Race: Detroit: Become Human

Detroit: Become Human represent another installment in pop culture’s obsession with androids. In this game, crafted by developer Quantic Dream, gamers are introduced to a futuristic Detroit revitalized by the introduction of androids that exist only to serve mankind. We play as three different android characters and our decision determine what Detroit’s future will be.

Interestingly, in a game that relies heavily on tropes of enslavement to spin it’s narrative, topics of race and racialization rarely arise, if ever. For this installment of the Gaming Race series, , we’ll discuss why it’s important to discuss American enslavement, why and how race still matters when pop culture turns to stories involving androids, and how Quantic Dream’s design of games like Detroit and Heavy Rain, don’t give us as much freedom to determine story outcomes as we think.

Sonoma Film Institute presents, The Wild Pear Tree

“Palme d’Or winner Nuri Bilge Ceylan’s THE WILD PEAR TREE is an achingly beautiful portrait of an ambitious young writer returning home after college. Hoping to enjoy momentary solace in the company of nature’s calming indifference and with parents whose lives are already settled, Sinan finds only guilt in confrontations with the too-early failures of his past acquaintances and a loaded sense of responsibility toward his father’s worsening gambling addiction. This need to see his life as separate from those he left behind incites a rich and sprawling metanarrative on the self-centeredness essential to pursuing a life of creativity. At once languid and rhapsodic, THE WILD PEAR TREE is a profound and poetic look at youth misspent grasping at a maturity that, once attained, is revealed as the ultimate disappointment.” – Malin Kan, AFI Film Festival (2018, 188 min., in Turkish w/English subtitles) Free Admission

Sonoma Film Institute Presents, Walkabout

Sonoma Film Institute Presents, Walkabout

Roeg's 1971 coming-of-age fable is set in the Australian Outback, where a 14-year-old city girl (Jenny Agutter) and her six-year-old brother (Roeg's son Luc) find themselves stranded when their father suddenly abandons them. Lost in the wilderness, they encounter an Aboriginal youth (the amazing David Gulpilil, in his first screen appearance) who is performing the ritual solo wandering that will mark his entrance into manhood. Roeg uses hallucinatory editing to provocatively contrast the modern world with the natural realm, while Agutter and Gulpilil both astonish with their mesmerizing, completely unguarded performances. (1971, 100 min.) Free Admission
