Director Rodney Ascher Talks <I>A Glitch in the Matrix</I>

by Kit Bowen 05 February, 2021

What if we are living in a simulation, and the world as we know it is not real? Here's the official synopsis for A Glitch in the Matrix:

To tackle this mind-bending idea, acclaimed filmmaker Rodney Ascher (Room 237, The Nightmare) uses a noted speech from Philip K. Dick to dive down the rabbit hole of science, philosophy, and conspiracy theory. Leaving no stone unturned in exploring the unprovable, the film uses contemporary cultural touchstones like The Matrix, interviews with real people shrouded in digital avatars, and a wide array of voices, expert and amateur alike. If simulation theory is not science fiction but fact, and life is a video game being played by some unknowable entity, then who are we, really? A Glitch in the Matrix attempts to find out.

ScreenPicks' Kit Bowen spoke with Ascher about his documentary, what spurred him to go down said "rabbit hole" -- and what he learned in the process. Watch below and check out the trailer!
