Her 2013 MA15+

‘Set in Los Angeles in the slight future, Her follows Theodore (Joaquin Phoenix), a complex soulful man who makes his living writing touching, personal letters for other people.

Heartbroken after the end of a long relationship, he becomes intrigued with a new, advanced operating system, which promises to be an intuitive and unique entity in its own right. Upon initiating it, he is delighted to meet ‘Samantha’, a bright female voice (Scarlett Johansson) who is insightful, sensitive and surprisingly funny.

As her needs and desires grow, in tandem with his own, their friendship deepens into an eventual love for each other.’ Warner Bros.

Mind Vs Machine: What Makes Us Human?  'Mind vs Machine' celebrates a rich subgenre of science fiction cinema that explores the intertwined relationship of humans and artificial intelligence. It focuses on films that investigate what it means to be human in counterpoint to humanoid technologies and the moral implications of artificial consciousness. The program has been curated for the World Science Festival Brisbane by QAGOMA’s Australian Cinémathèque.
