Dreams Rewired

Whitechapel Gallery

A film by Manu Luksch, Martin Reinhart, Thomas Tode narrated by Tilda Swinton sound design, voice over text by Mukul Patel DREAMS REWIRED traces the desires and anxieties of today’s hyper-connected world back more than a hundred years, when telephone, film and television were new. As revolutionary then as contemporary social media is today, early electric media sparked a fervent utopianism in the public imagination – promising total communication, the annihilation of distance, an end to war. But then, too, there were fears over the erosion of privacy, security, morality. Using rare (and often unseen) archival material from nearly 200 films to articulate the present, DREAMS REWIRED reveals a history of hopes to share, and betrayals to avoid. Followed by Q & A with Manu Luksch and Mukul Patel
