A Y2K-Hole selection

Video game designer Allegra Geller (Jennifer Jason Leigh) has created a virtual reality game called eXistenZ. After a crazed fan attempts to kill her, Allegra goes on the run with Ted (Jude Law), a young businessman who falls into the role of bodyguard. In an attempt to save her game, Allegra implants into Ted's body the video game pod that carries a damaged copy of eXistenZ. Now inhabiting a grey space between body and machine, Allegra and Ted engage in a series of experiences that blur the lines between fantasy and reality.


Catch the Y2K bug at FilmScene! Y2K-hole is a celebration of some of the grimiest, most outrageous yellow-and-blue-tinted standalone sci-fi of the turn of the millennium. A generational sense of impending doom, fear of youth in revolt, and the tightening grip of technology on malleable young brains underscore these stylish, high-concept titles – so come on up to the roof to party like it’s the end of the world.
