NEWMEDIA #edcmooc

NEWMEDIA from MOLI on Vimeo.

What similarities and differences can you identify between the two films: NEWMEDIA and Bendito Machine III?

The  film  NEWMEDIA looks like the Hollywood movie War of the Words. There’s a scene where the alien seems to be connected to the guy’s ear, maybe a brainwash procedure. 
This is definitely an example of dystopia. It’s a post-apocalyptic portray of the world, destroyed and dominated by machines (aliens).

I guess the similarity between both films is the fact that humans are completely dominated by technology to the point that there’s no way back. 

Um comentário:

  1. That's a good point! I've also found a couple of others (say, technology in both films is animated and acts by own will and with own purpose, etc.), but also of them are definitely characteristic of extreme technological determinism.
