Robocop (18) + Presentation by Will Jackson
This cult classic takes place in a dystopic and crime-ridden Detroit and follows a terminally wounded cop who returns to the force as a powerful cyborg haunted by submerged memories. Will Jackson muses on whether technology is to blame for its misuse. Who are the villains, the machines or their masters?
