Blade Runner - On Nearing 30

Produced almost 30 years ago, Blade Runner, a dark and mysterious film depicting a dystopian future, continues to haunt us by asking deep questions about humanity, death, the environment and ethics, questions becoming all the more relevant as time goes by...

  • How long have I got?
  • What does it mean to be human anyway?
  • Do we have the right to terminate artificial life much less create it?
  • Do we have the right to survive given what we have done to the environment?
  • Are we better off with all this tech?
  • Can civilization survive in spite of itself?
Questions to ponder, don't you think?
