This 1995 cyberthriller starring Angelina Jolie, Jonny Lee Miller, and Matthew Lillard pits a group of Nintendo-generation "keyboard cowboys" against an evil former hacker turned corporate computer security chief who is trying to frame the young hackers for his own nefarious crimes. Featuring enormous videogame imagery, a '90s cyberculture aesthetic, and a terrific electronica soundtrack, the film is a cult favorite. Before the screening, game designer Jesse Schell, professor of entertainment technology at Carnegie Mellon University, CEO of Schell Games, and former chair of the International Game Developers Association, talks about which parts of HACKERS have come true, will come true, and will never come true, and some of the cool things we can expect in gaming and technology.
