LUMI X NISF: Her

LUMI X NISF: Her
Event Description

Released in 2013, Spike Jonze's Her intricately weaves the realms of technology, human emotions, and the pursuit of connection in a near-future Los Angeles.

Theodore (Joaquin Phoenix), is a solitary writer who forms a profound bond with artificial intelligence, Samantha. Voiced by Scarlett Johansson, her haptic voice brings Samantha to life, making her a vivid and compelling entity in the audience's imagination.

The film draws parallels to the myth of Pygmalion, where a sculptor falls in love with his creation, a statue brought to life by the gods. Similarly, Theodore seeks to sculpt the perfect woman in Samantha, but their relationship takes a twist as Samantha gains self awareness and autonomy.

Her looks at the intricate threads of love, identity, and consciousness, prompting viewers to ponder the ethical complexities of human-AI relationships in an exploration of the human quest for connection.
