Synopsis:

Philosophy & Film returns in January with another cracking event. Have you ever wondered whether all your experiences are mere hallucinations, generated by robot overlords to keep you docile while they use you as a battery? If not, the Matrix will force you to consider this disturbing possibility. This film raises the age old question of how we can know anything about the world around us, in light of the possibility that our experiences are systematically deceptive.

Following this screening Dr. Heather Logue of the University of Leeds will join us for a short talk and an audience discussion exploring issues raised in the film.
