It's a question that has been around since the dawn of philosophy. What if our world and everything in it isn't real?
The digital age has seen the idea of simulation theory enter the mainstream, not least on the back of The Wachowskis' seminal blockbuster The Matrix.
Now a mind-blowing brand-new film A GLITCH IN THE MATRIX from acclaimed documentary filmmaker Rodney Ascher has turned his attention from film obsessives (Kubrick and The Shining doc Room 237) and spooky sleep paralysis stories (The Nightmare, described as the scariest film of the decade) to simulation theory in another ground-breaking documentary.
Ascher and producer Ross Dinerstein ponder the questions it throws up - what does it mean if our whole existence is on the whim of some strange creature or gamer somewhere?
A GLITCH IN THE MATRIX is out now on digital platforms, the DVD is released May 4th 2021, and the new trailer is at the link above.
