In 2173, scientists discover the 200 year old cryogenically frozen body of Miles, a quiet, awkward clarinet player and health food store owner from Greenwich Village. Miles is enlisted to help anti-government radicals overthrow the totalitarian police state that has destroyed any evidence of recorded history.

Off on his own, Miles begins to explore this brave new world, which has Orgasmatron booths and confessional robots to replace sex and religion.

The Cable Car Cinema and the Providence Center for Media Culture in collaboration with the Providence Public Library present Portals: History of the Future Film Series. Q&A to follow film.
