An author: http://www.publicationstudio.biz/books/215

And the editor of VICE/Motherboard’s emerging sci-fi imprint Terraform: http://motherboard.vice.com/terraform

Tonight, Evans comes to us as advocate for a new wave of science fiction. She’ll speak on the importance of sci-fi as a form of cultural first response—she’ll investigate how we can think science-fictionally in our daily lives, and use the genre to help us understand the complexities of the present.

This one’s going to be amazing, kids. Attendance is mandatory.

TRAILER

ABOUT THE FILM:
At the height of the bullying scandal that rocked the U.S. in 2008, a 15-year-old boy named Larry King asked another boy to be his valentine in a suburban schoolyard in California. The next day Larry was dead, shot in cold blood by his 14-year-old crush Brandon McInerney. At turns shocking, devastating, and outrageous, VALENTINE ROAD bores deeply into the homophobia, sexism, racism, and class-struggle that inform everyday American life—and reveals an American justice system that is utterly unprepared to deal with the realities of teenage crime and punishment. Directed by first-time feature documentarian Marta Cunningham, VALENTINE ROAD is an unforgettable exposé of society’s pervasive and deadly intolerance of young people who don’t conform to its gender “norms.” World premiered at Sundance 2013, this film will both break your heart and fire you up into action.

89 min.
