Join us at the West Tisbury Library on Monday, November 27th at 7pm for a screening of the documentary, “Brave New World – How Silicon Valley is Shaping our Future” followed by a Q&A with the film’s director, Angela Andersen. Critics say:
“This is an extraordinary documentary that combines hard-nosed reporting, insightful commentary and stunning visuals to bring us deep inside the disruptive world of Silicon Valley. “Brave New World” captures the human costs, the potential threats and the vast opportunities from the ground zero of future technologies.”
“…a fascinating glimpse into Silicon Valley projects that have the potential to revolutionize our lives, from self-driving cars to artificial intelligence. But the thrill of the new technologies is tempered by an awareness of unintended consequences.”
