SUNDAY 13 FEBRUARY 2022 (A–Z) // What’s on in London today across DIY, indie & alternative cinema including one-off screen events, film seasons, film festivals & our selection of new releases.
Sunday Sessions: USERS d. Natalia Almada, 2022 at Bertha DocHouse (13 FEB 16:00).
“As technology advances, USERS invites us to question how the machines we use every day may end up changing us forever. Both intimate in scope and epic in scale, Natalia Almada’s stunning visual essay takes us on a cinematic journey to reassess our relationship with tech and its impact on our planet. Featuring a score performed by the Kronos quartet, USERS is a big screen audio-visual feast – ravishing and unsettling in equal measure.” (Bertha DocHouse)
