Dreams Rewired (16+)

Austria – Germany – United Kingdom, 2015, colour, 88 min.
Director: Manu Luksch, Martin Reinhart, Thomas Tode
Dreams Rewired traces the desires and anxieties of today’s hyper-connected world
back more than a hundred years, when telephone, film and television were new. As
revolutionary then as contemporary social media is today, early electric media sparked a
fervent utopianism in the public imagination – promising total communication, the
annihilation of distance, an end to war. But then, too, there were fears over the erosion of
privacy, security, morality. Using rare (and often unseen) archival material from nearly 200
films to articulate the present, Dreams Rewired reveals a history of hopes to share, and
betrayals to avoid.

AWARDS

Ann Arbor Film Festival (USA, 2015) – Jury Award; Doker (Russia, 2016) – Best Feature Documentary Award. Let It Dok! Competition; Papierene Gustl Award (2017) – Best Documentary Film and 3rd place in the category Best Austrian Film.
