The Matrix

Screening and book talk with authors Willow Maclay and Caden Gardner

Join authors Willow Maclay and Caden Gardner for a screening of The Matrix and discussion about their new book Corpses, Fools and Monsters: The History and Future of Transness in Cinema. 

Have you ever had a dream that you were so sure was real? What if you couldn’t awaken? How would you know the difference between dream and reality? When a beautiful stranger (Carrie Ann Moss) leads computer hacker Neo (Keanu Reeves) to a forbidding underworld, he discovers the shocking truth — the life he knows is the elaborate deception of an evil cyber-intelligence. Neo joins legendary and dangerous rebel warrior Morpheus (Lawrence Fishburne) in the battle to destroy the illusion enslaving humanity.

"The Matrix slams you back in your chair, pops open your eyes and leaves your jaw hanging slack in amazement."
Shawn Levy, Portland Oregonian
