Utah Film Center's Through the Lens presents "Users" a Free Film Screening & Discussion @ The City Library |  |  |

Join Utah Film Center on Wednesday, July 12th at 7:00 pm at The City Library in Downtown Salt Lake for a free film screening of Sundance film winner, “Users”.

“Users” begins with a mother questioning – will my children love the perfect machines more than they love me, their imperfect mother? She pushes the button and a smart crib lulls her crying baby to sleep, flawlessly every time. This question guides her inquiry into the intimate relationship we have with technology that is increasingly driving all aspects of our society.

“Users” traverse places ranging from the largest indoor vertical farm in the world to the perfect artificial wave, from an IVF embryo lab to a fiber optic cable landing. The invisible infrastructure that we all rely on is made visible. Our reliance on machines and our alienation from each other is palatable. Urgent global issues like climate change and privacy are explored from the intimate perspective of a mother thinking, worrying and loving her children.

After the screening will be a Q&A moderated by KUER’s RadioWest host, Doug Fabrizio with film director Natalia Almada.
