A surreal vision of the digitized, quantified world, drifting from internet innovators to sterile data centers, as poetically narrated by the internet itself. An experimental documentary, the film features interviews with digital luminaries such as computer pioneer Gordon Bell, Internet Archive founder Brewster Kahle, Director of Engineering at Google Ray Kurzweil, among others. ‘In Limbo’ is Antoine Viviani’s poetic exploration of our digital age – an age in which we are building a digital universe that will outlive us.

A Q&A with Director Antoine Viviani will follow.

The film will be preceded by two shorts about other data systems:

Quantum Fluctuations (2 min / Markos Kay / UK / 2016)

In Quantum Fluctuations, particle simulations are used to visualize the distinct micro-events that occur in the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) during a proton collision. Made as a series of conceptual experiments, the film aims to show the complexity and abstract nature of these unobservable aspects of the world that create concrete reality.

The Researcher’s Article (7 min / Charlotte Arene / France / 2015)

How do scientists publish their discoveries? From first idea to publication, this film takes you through the long, painstaking, but ultimately elating process of a discovery in physics.
