TRON: Legacy
Piano Lounge, Graham House, Green College, UBC
February 29 8:00 pm - 10:00 pm

This week’s screening will feature director Joseph Kosinski's high-tech feast for the senses, TRON: Legacy. The original TRON (1982) was one of the first science fiction texts to visually depict the metaphor of cyberspace as a physical place, and the 2010 sequel surpasses the original in pure spectacle and features a transcendental soundtrack by the legendary Daft Punk. Tying into the Resident Members' Series talk by English MA student Sunny Chan on techno-orientalism in cyberpunk literature, TRON: Legacy is on one level a silly Disney blockbuster, yet on a more surprising level a theoretically complex literalisation of the blurring line between cyber consumers and producers.
