Synthetic Pleasures (1995) | Plokta x Doka Culture

During ADE, come and see the documentary Synthetic Pleasures (1995) by Iara Lee. This self proclaimed ‘electronic roadmovie’ of nearly a quarter of a century old, shows what major tech pioneers, futurists and artists had to say about the technological developments of their time. With tons of visuals and music, this film opens a gateway to synthetic experiences like virtual reality, plastic surgery, electronic music and smart drugs, and shows what they have to offer for the human species.

New York Times:
"a trippy, provocative tour,"

'The future’ that this documentary from 1995 predicts is ‘now’. Get ready for an inspirational film that invites you to explore your personal view on technology, culture and society. See the visuals on the big screen and listen to its soundscapes on the new sound system of Doka.

When the end credits start rolling, DJ’s shall start some time-bending synthetic pleasures.
