The Desert of the Real

As I mentioned in class today, the film The Matrix (1999) draws on Baudrillard’s theories. Above is a clip from the documentary Return to Source: Philosophy and The Matrix (2004), which explores several philosophical concepts that inspired The Matrix film trilogy. Watch the clip and discuss how it helps you further understand the concepts we discussed in class today.

Follow this link to watch the documentary in its entirety.
