Description

Celebrated journalist and author Malcolm Gladwell leads the first comprehensive documentary look at self-driving cars in Autonomy. The film is a cinematic exploration of the world of automated vehicles — from their technical history to the personal narratives of those affected by them to the many unanswered questions about how this technology will affect modern society. Autonomy features interviews with industry pioneers and scenes with cutting-edge “AVs” in action around the world. Inspired by a special issue of Car and Driver, Autonomy reinforces the context of where the “car” meets the coming revolution in mobility, presenting an essential primer on the subject and how it will affect you.
Followed by a LIVE Q&A with Director Alex Horwitz, Greg McGuire (MCity Lab Director), Benjamin Kuipers (Professor of Computer Science and Engineering) and Eddie Alterman (Chief Brand Officer of Hearst Autos).
