c: o/re Movie Nights – Her

May 29 @ 20:15 - 22:30

We are looking forward to the collaboration with the film studio of RWTH Aachen University! As part of the lecture series of the Käte Hamburger Center for Advanced Study in the Humanities: Cultures of Research in the summer semester “Lifelikeness” we will show the film “Her” by by Spike Jonze (2013).

About the Film:

In a not so distant future our communicative devices take over a lot of our social work. But some things can only be done by humans. It’s Theodore Twombly’s Job to write letters for other people. Just divorced from his wife Catherine he turns towards the new advantages of technology. In this case it is the new operating system that comes with artificial intelligence and a wonderful smooth voice. His OS starts by naming itself Samantha and turns out to be great company in all everyday situations. Theodore attempts to find a new love but he soon discovers that it is Samantha who makes him happy — and he is not the only one.

The film will be screened at the Aula 1 im Hauptgebäude der RWTH Aachen (Temeplgraben 55, 52062). All details and tickets can be found here.

As an introduction before the film, philosopher Ben Woodard (ICI Berlin) will give a lecture entitled “Ideal Locale – her and the envelope function of idealist predication”. The lecture will take place on May 29 at 3 pm at Theaterstraße 75. Please send us an email if you would like to come to the lecture: events@khk.rwth-aachen.de
