23 September 2014

Cyborgs and robots gone haywire? Or the ideal of the perfect human in a perfect world?

Hollywood films, television series and Art House cinema all too often like to focus on the relationship between man and machine. In September and October you´ll be able to view examples of this on a weekly basis at Impakt Headquarters. Look forward to a multi-faceted program consisting of exciting and relevant film productions and series.
