A.I. + Ex Machina Double Bill

In partnership with Guardian Live, this movie double bill focuses on artificial intelligence, with two features whose themes are decreasingly classifiable as science fiction; in fact we’re heading ever closer to a world where these subjects are science fact.

Originally the brainchild of the late, great Stanley Kubrick, the Steven Spielberg-directed A.I. Artificial Intelligence tells the story of a childlike robot programmed with the ability to love, and his journey to discover where he truly belongs.

The first half of this double bill, however, is Alex Garland’s riveting and thought-provoking 2015 thriller Ex Machina, which tells the story of Caleb (Domhnall Gleeson), who is selected to be the human element in a Turing test to determine the consciousness of Ava, a supremely advanced robot portrayed in the film by Alicia Vikander.

We are privileged to be joined at this event by scientific adviser on Ex Machina, broadcaster and frequent Guardian contributor Adam Rutherford, to talk about the science behind the film.
