William Gibson: No Maps for These Territories Directed by Mark Neale
A fascinating, quite literal trip along the 'information highway'" - The Austin Chronicle
On an overcast morning in 1999, William Gibson, father of cyberpunk and author of the cult-classic novel “Neuromancer,” stepped into a limousine and set off on a road trip around North America. The limo was rigged with digital cameras, a computer, a television, a stereo, and a cell phone. Generated entirely by this four-wheeled media machine, NO MAPS FOR THESE TERRITORIES is both an account of Gibson’s life and work and a commentary on the world outside the car windows. Here, the man who coined the word “cyberspace” offers a unique perspective on Western culture at the edge of the new millennium, and in the throes of convulsive, tech-driven change.
Featuring readings and appearances by Bruce Sterling, Jack Womack, Bono & The Edge.
