For five weeks this spring, the Providence Public Library welcomes you to travel through time, visit utopian and dystopian worlds, and experience multiple dimensions as we present Portals: History of the Future Film Series. Spanning 100 years of the moving image, we invite you to take a deep dive into our collective psyches, to discover how through time, cinema has captured our imaginations of our future world(s). From the fantastical to the disastrous, the hilarious to the incredible, each film sheds light on our collective hopes, dreams and fears about what the future holds.

Q&A to follow

 

An engrossing exploration of the lives of seven people, who experience deep connections in cyberspace. Travel with them as they find love, hate, loneliness and intimacy within the digital universe. Can we imagine a future when we will all have an avatar, a reimagined, new improved version of ourselves? Login 2 Life invites us to ponder what our world will look like if and when these digital selves become a natural extension of our physical selves?
