SCREENING + Q&A

Earth II

Sunday, Oct 23, 2022 at 5:00 pm

Location: Redstone Theater

With the Anti-Banality Union in person

Dir. Anti-Banality Union. 2021, 97 mins. DCP. With Keanu Reeves, Matt Damon, Will Smith, Jeff Goldblum. The Anti-Banality Union, an anonymous collective that makes collage-style films out of Hollywood movies, strikes again. Earth II is a supercut that draws from the past four decades of blockbusters in which civilization and the world itself are collapsing, disaffected villains scheme for their own survival, Keanu Reeves leads the resistance, and Matt Damon becomes a Martian. Recurrent cinematic tropes reveal truths about society’s past, present, and future. To speak about “the most expensive climate disaster epic to be produced for no money,” the Anti-Banality Union will join us in-person for a Q&A. The screening will also be accompanied by an essay by acclaimed author and researcher Britt Wray (Generation Dread: Finding Purpose in an Age of Climate Crisis).

Tickets: $15 / $11 senior and students / $9 youth (ages 3–17) / Free or discounted for MoMI members. Order tickets. Please pick up tickets at the Museum’s admissions desk upon arrival. All seating is general admission. Review safety protocols before your visit.
