Technophobia in Film: A Film Discussion Class “Be afraid. Be very afraid.” From the very beginning, Hollywood movies have offered a frightening reflection of our deep fear of technology, its effects, & sinister implications. Time-traveling terminators, resurrected dinosaurs, alien invasions, & virtual prisons all give us a sense of just how terrified Hollywood writers, directors, and producers think we are (or should be). In this class we will investigate popular, pivotal movies and discuss their fears, warnings, and possible solutions to this ever-increasing cultural technophobia. Join us!
