Forum Series: Technology, Culture, and the Price of Progress

In Annie Baker’s 2013 Pulitzer Prize winning play, The Flick, one of the last remaining 35MM film projectors in the state of Massachusetts is threatened to be replaced by its digital counterpart. The shift might seem insignificant, but for the employees caught in middle of the “upgrade” it’s just another way the world is catapulting forward with no regard for the human cost. Digital recording, music streaming, and instant video download are all innovations that have made entertainment cheaper, more accessible, and more ubiquitous than ever. But has the progress come at a cost? Join us as we discuss the broad impacts of our insatiable hunger for entertainment, and the ways that cultural progress has impacted our community. Featured on our Forum panel will be Jordan Rumsey of GVLToday and our very own Managing Director, Jason D. Johnson. As always, the Forum is free and open to the public.
