Watch the 1990 Total Recall With Francis Fukuyama in Washington, D.C.

FT-Total Recall

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.
