You will now fill out a ‘passport’ and learn how to use all of the machines in the studio yourself. Classes will also be switching more project based and will give you the skills to create items yourself.

Library Gals Go To The Future - Cyberpunk Monday

Library Gals Go To The Future - Cyberpunk Monday

November 29, 2021

Plug in and travel with us to the future, where the Library Gals explore cyberpunk movies, in honor(sort of) of Cyber Monday!

This month, Katy and Via are discussing two extremes of the cyberpunk genre with Ready Player One(2018), an action-packed, nostalgia train of virtual reality in a dystopian world, and A Scanner Darkly(2006), a drug-fueled, conspiracy-filled, psychological crime sci-fi that will have you checking for cameras everywhere. Fun, right? 

Both movies are available through the Delaware County District Library. You can also watch A Scanner Darkly using our free movie website, Kanopy. All you need is a library card!

Remember, this podcast contains spoilers! So tune in after a movie viewing or at your own risk. 

As always, we'd love to hear what you think of the episode, what your favorite cyberpunk movies are, or any other movie recommendation you'd like us to review in a future episode. You can e-mail us at  libraryguys@delawarelibrary.org.

Happy listening! Quick Katy! Back to the DeLorean!
