Relaxed screenings are presented each month for those in the neuro-diverse community and their carers and assistants. More detailed information about these screenings can be found at bfi.org.uk/relaxed

When a young computer engineer (Gleeson) wins a competition to spend a week with the reclusive CEO of the tech firm that he works for, he encounters the world’s first advanced artificial intelligence. Alex Garland deliberately sought to achieve a kind of Kubrickian space within his stunning directorial debut; by creating ambiguity around his character’s motivations, he asks us to construct our own understanding and interpretation of events.

Tickets £3, audio description available.
