Is there A Glitch In The Matrix? Watch the trailer for new documentary

What if we are living in a simulation, and the world as we know it is not real? To tackle this mind-bending idea, acclaimed filmmaker Rodney Ascher (ROOM 237, THE NIGHTMARE) uses a noted speech from Philip K. Dick to dive down the rabbit hole of science, philosophy, and conspiracy theory. Leaving no stone unturned in exploring the unprovable, the film uses contemporary cultural touchstones like THE MATRIX, interviews with real people shrouded in digital avatars, and a wide array of voices, expert and amateur alike.

If simulation theory is not science fiction but fact, and life is a video game being played by some unknowable entity, then who are we, really? A Glitch In The Matrix attempts to find out.

“A GLITCH IN THE MATRIX is a mind-scrambler in the most profound, accomplished way,” said Magnolia President Eamonn Bowles. “Rodney Ascher has made a work that will have you legitimately questioning your universe.”

“Considering the number of realities I could have found myself trapped in, I’m thrilled to actually be in the one where we’ve found partners as bold and supportive as Magnolia to work with on this project,” said Ascher. “The film was an amazing opportunity to engage with big ideas and explore animation and science-fiction inspired imagery on the biggest canvas I’ve ever had, so I’m thankful we’re in such good hands to get it out into the world.”

Magnolia Pictures will release A GLITCH IN THE MATRIX in US cinemas and on demand on February 5th, 2021.

Premiering in Sundance Film Festival’s Midnight Section 2021.
