MODERN ART OXFORD PRESENTS FUTURE KNOWLEDGE SEASON / SUN 14 - MON 29 MAY

We are once again collaborating with Modern Art Oxford to bring you a season of classics to complement their latest special exhibition.

Between Sunday 14th and Monday 29th May, we will show three classic films which look at subject of human ecology in the urban environment to run alongside the exhibition Future Knowledge.

Our season begins with the 1983 environmental masterpiece Koyaanisqatsi. Drawing its title from the Hopi word meaning "life out of balance," Godfrey Reggio’s renowned documentary reveals how humanity has grown apart from nature.

The season’s second title the legendary cyberpunk animation Akira. Released in 1988, the film depicts a dystopian Neo-Tokyo threatened by a biker gang. The films phenomenal visuals and thrilling kinetic energy helped set the standard of modern anime.

The season ends with Charlie Chaplin masterpiece Modern Times. A slapstick skewering of industrialised America, Chaplin stars as an assembly-line worker driven insane by the monotony of his job in this politically incisive and laugh-out-loud comedy.

Tickets for this season are on sale for the special price of £6 for adults, £5 concessions and £3 for children. UPP and MAO members receive an additional £2 discount on the above prices.

Future Knowledge exhibition at Modern Art Oxford runs between 20th May and 25th June 2017.
