As part of Hull UK City of Culture celebrations Blast Theory and KCOM present 2097: We Made Ourselves Over, an interactive project around 5 short sci-fi films set in Hull 80 years into the future.
It’s 2097 and the days of upheaval are over. A new resilience has taken hold.
Three young girls must make a decision which will affect their entire city, as well as members of their own families. The future of the city relies on their ability to embrace the unknown, face the future and act.
2097: We Made Ourselves Over takes you on a journey to the cusp of the next century. Come into a world where consciousness is transferred from the dead to the living. See molecular harvesters destroy cities and rebuild them.
In five short science fiction films – each accompanied by an interactive film for smartphones – and through live events across both Hull and Aarhus, 2097: We Made Ourselves Over explores the belief that everyone has the power to act and influence the future – uncovering the unnerving and exhilarating idea that anything is possible.
Our monthly Short Film City Hull programme showcases the best of short films from around the world. We know that short film is not always the first thing that comes to mind for a night out so to encourage you to give this under appreciated format a try we run these nights on a pay-what-you-want basis. The recommended price is £4 but you can choose whatever you feel is right.
7:00pm: Doors open. Why not grab a drink from Fruit’s bar and settle in for the film? Fruit has a selection of over 50 beers, including world lagers, ales, bitters, stouts and ciders as well as a range of craft, trappist, abbey and wheat beers. They also offer wines, hand pulled ales, tea & coffee, spirits and bar snacks.
7.30pm: Programme starts. There will be at least one interval.
9.30pm: Programme ends. Post-screening we’ll be having a drink in the bar and would love for you to join us and chat about the films.
The programme run time includes an allowance for introductions and trailers. This may vary and in some cases the film will begin immediately after a short introduction. While we will endeavour to accommodate latecomers, this may not always be possible. Please note that we reserve the right to refuse entry, without a refund, to anyone arriving after the advertised programme start time.
