Los Angeles, California, 2019: Rick Deckard (Harrison Ford) of the L.A.P.D.'s Blade Runner unit prowls the steel and microchip jungle of the twenty-first century for assumed humanoids known as "replicants". Replicants were declared illegal after a bloody mutiny on an off-world colony, and are to be terminated upon detection. Man's obsession with creating a being equal to himself has backfired.
Hosted together with Edinburgh Skeptics and About Film David Lawrence's talk was part of the event "Yesterday’s Tomorrow: an evening of Blade Runner (2007)".
David introduced the topic of human enhancement and how that is portrayed in Blade Runner. Follow the cup for a brief of David's work.
