A GLITCH IN THE MATRIX

de Rodney Ascher

Trailer

Synopsis

What if we are living in a simulation and the world as we know it isn't real? Rodney Ascher uses a speech by Philip K. Dick to take a plunge down the rabbit hole of science, philosophy and conspiracy theory. Exploring the unprovable, the film uses interviews with real people cloaked in digital avatars and a wide range of voices, both expert and amateur.
