“Cold War Fantasies” Film Lab at OSA Archivum Screens Two Films Dec. 3

Open Society Archives presents the final film screening in a 12-week, 12-film series about the Cold War’s technological, political, and science-fiction imagery on Dec. 3 at 6 p.m.. The first film, “Machine Dreams,” (1956, 12min.) was co-produced by IBM, Boeing, and the U.S. Air Force about a computerized warning system designed to protect the U.S. against enemy aircraft. The second film, “Kin-Dza-Dza,” (1986) is a longer film directed by Georgiy Daneliya. Set in Moscow in the 80s, this cyberpunk comedy explores in a minimalist way the encounter of opposed civilizations and the afterlife of a machinistic age. The films will be shown at OSA Archivum, 1051 Budapest, Arany Janos utca 32, Room 212. Admission is free. Seats available from 5:30 pm. For more information, see www.osaarchivum.org.
