SF Film Series

Jenna Ng, Jim Barrett, Scott Svatos, and other members of HUMlab and I started the HUMlab Science Fiction Film Series in 2010: “dedicated to bringing interesting science fiction movies to Umeå University for both entertainment and scholarly purposes. Films are centered around the general notion of human identity in relation to technology. In HUMlab, students, scholars, and artists explore the world using technology, seek to define and push the boundaries of current technological devices and tools, and investigate the nature of technology itself. The films in the Science Fiction film series do the same thing. We will explore technological issues by screening films that offer interesting perspectives both in terms of both content and production technique. This is not a series of “science fiction greats,” but a selection of movies that have something unique to say about the increasingly technological world in which we live.”
