For many of us, there’s something alluring about the rain-soaked, neon-lit streets of Blade Runner, but those streets are no place to be a replicant on the run. With Blade Runner 2049‘s highly anticipated release just days away, we take a look back at the original 1982 sci-fi cult classic. Blade Runner‘s tale of persecuted androids struggling for a better life in the dystopian cyberpunk future of 2019 is deeply concerned with matters of humanity and oppression, but how do race and gender factor into those concerns? Find out in this episode of The FREQ Show!
