37th Annual VIRGINIA FILM FESTIVAL October 30-November 3, 2024



Acclaimed author Malcolm Gladwell leads the first comprehensive documentary look at the human side of the emerging technology that will power self-driving vehicles. Providing a cinematic exploration into a brief history of self-driving cars and the evolution of the automobile industry, this film emphasizes the unanswered questions of the potential impact self-driving technology could have on a variety of practical applications and age groups. Director Alex Horwitz focuses not on speculation regarding the future of cars, but rather on the human side of innovation and the psychology of control, fear, and adapting to change. Discussion with subjects Andy Schaudt and Debbie Desiderato, moderated by Donna Chen (UVA)
