In Search of Tomorrow

From 16 Oct
ArtScience Cinema, Level 4
Mix of free and ticketed admission with online pre-booking


Spaceships, aliens, floating cities and red dusty planets - in the shiny and bold world of science-fiction, humanity's aesthetic of the future has always been shaped by our fear of the unknown, and our unshakable desire to peek behind the curtain.


In Search of Tomorrow celebrates visions of the future with a lineup of kitsch b-movies, beloved cult classics, and contemporary arthouse films that depict the utopian and dystopian fantasies of what life could be like, on Earth or elsewhere. Films include Andrei Tarkovsky’s seminal Solaris (1972), iconic android cartoon Astro Boy (1980), and Apichatpong Weerasethakul’s hallucinatory Memoria (2021), starring Tilda Swinton.
