Famous for coining the phrase "The Medium is the Message" and predicting "The Global Village" in the 1960s, Marshall McLuhan revolutionized how we think of technology and culture.
Featuring films that reflect his writings and influence as a communication and media theorist, this program's centerpiece is Picnic in Space (Bruce Bacon, 1967). McLuhan explicates all the prime concepts of his cultural theories, but in constant reference to visual, auditory and physical space. Extremely rare and quite poppy, this work captures the casual tone and form of his writings.
