UCD Presents Future Love


Friday, 13th November

UCD Science Expression & Festival of Curiosity Present Technology & Love present a screening of Spike Jonze’s love story, ‘Her’, shown on Friday, 13th November at 7pm at Filmbase.

‘Her’ will be follored by a panel discussion with Dr. Mark Mc Cormack & Dr. Emer Maguire who will be joined by Roisin Agnew who writes for Lonely Planet, the Irish Times and is editor of Guts Magazine.

Set in the Los Angeles of the slight future, HER follows Theodore Twombly, 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 entity in its own right, individual to each user. Upon initiating it, he is delighted to meet Samantha, a bright, female voice, 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.

From the unique perspective of Oscar-nominated filmmaker Spike Jonze comes an original love story that explores the evolving nature – and the risks – of intimacy in the modern world.
