Enjoy a nights of online screening from the UCL film society! Discussion will follow each film over zoom, a great space for discussing your ideas and passion. Alternatively, treat the discussion like a podcast and just sit back to listen to other students’ thoughts. These events will be an opportunity to relax, reflect, meet new people, and get involved with one of the many exciting societies that the university has to offer.

Spike Jonze’s Her is a subtle and deeply touching story of love and loneliness. In a not-too-distant-future Los Angeles, the introverted Theodore Twombly (Joaquin Phoenix) grapples with the aftermath of his broken marriage and begins to find solace in the unexpected form of his virtual assistant - an artificial intelligence who names herself Samantha (Scarlett Johansson). As their relationship blossoms, both are faced by the problematic implications of loving through such a dynamic. The film features incredible performances from both of its leading actors, an Oscar-winning screenplay and one of the most interesting and original takes on the aesthetic of the future’s cities in recent film history. We are confident in the hope that this film will be a catalyst for some very thoughtful conversation regarding technology and its impact on the most human of experiences.

Access will be shared with ticket holders once they redeem a ticket
