One ticket good for all films. (no ins and outs)


Synopsis:
THE SINGULARITY

Within the coming decades we will be able to create computers with greater than human intelligence, bio-engineer our species, and re-design matter through nanotechnology. How will these technologies change what it means to be human?

Director Doug Wolens speaks with leading futurists, computer scientists, artificial intelligence experts, and philosophers who turn over the question like a Rubik's Cube. Ultimately, if we become more machine-like, and machines more like us, will we sacrifice our humanity to gain something greater? Or will we engineer our own demise?

THE SINGULARITY is the most comprehensive and insightful documentary film about the singularity to date.

BUTTERFLY

Living 180 feet off the ground in an ancient redwood tree for over two years, Julia Butterfly Hill captured the hearts and minds of the world by showing us that one person can make a difference.

 
WEED

Every year, Amsterdam hosts the world's biggest pot party, and you're invited. Weed takes place at the 8th annual Cannabis Cup & Hemp Expo, a haven for tokers of every stripe -- Patagonia-clad slackers, chic urban business women, blunt toking homeboys, and of course a bunch of refried hippies. A unique, bleary-eyed look at marijuana culture in the '90s.
