Conversations about the future

Brett Leonard: The new technologies and the new Hollywood cinema narratives

Our technologies are a natural part of human evolution. It is part of who we are. It is not separate from us. Technologies are created from our dreams – and nightmares. Our film narrative can help us see both the absurdness in some of our technologies (e.g. the possibility of a nuclear holocaust) as well as being the better ‘angels’ of our nature and help us see new utopias. Because of our pivotal moment in history right now, the Hollywood 2.0 narratives must focus on how we can come closer to the divine possibilities in our new technologies, and thereby help us become better humans.

Brett Leonard: De nye teknologier og de nye Hollywood filmnarrativer

Vores teknologier er en naturlig del af menneskets evolution. De er en del af os selv. De er ikke adskilte fra os. Teknologierne er skabt af vores drømme – og mareridts. Vores filmnarrativer kan hjælpe os med både at se det absurde i nogle af vores teknologier (f.eks. nuklear holocaust), såvel som at være vores skytsengle og vise nye eventyrlige muligheder. Pga. den historiske brydningstid vi er i lige nu, skal narrativerne i Hollywood 2.0 fokusere på, hvordan vi kommer tættere på de guddommelige muligheder i de nye teknologier, og derved hjælpe os til at blive bedre mennesker.
