Paul Verhoeven's 1990 cult classic Total Recall, based on a Philip K. Dick short story, asks what might happen if technology could erase your past, replacing it with a false identity and memories that are not your own.
Future Tense will be screening Total Recall on Thursday, Sept. 18, at 6:30 p.m. at Washington, D.C.'s Landmark E Street Cinema at 555 11th St. Our host for the evening will be Francis Fukuyama, author of The Origins of Political Order and The End of History and the Last Man, and senior fellow at Stanford's Freeman Spogli Institute for International Studies.
This is an installment of Future Tense's "My Favorite Movie" series. If you would like to attend, RSVP to email@example.com with your name, email address, and any affiliation you'd like to share. You may RSVP for yourself and up to one guest, and please include your guest's name in your response. Seating is limited, so email now to get in on this opportunity to see Total Recall in theaters.
