49: Possible Worlds (2000) with Math Rosen
This week, interdisciplinary performer Math Rosen joins Becky and Cam to talk 2000’s beautifully crafted, almost unclassifiable, “Possible Worlds”. We discuss the difference between emotional and intellectual reactions, what exactly constitutes a “twist” instead of a “turn”, and the beauty of a really cool practical illusion on film. Add to that a brief talk about the career of Robert LaPage and you have a pretty solid discussion of this Sci-Fi for thinking people.
This week's end credit music is Drag the Desert by Ada Vale.
