the visual legacy of TRON with Geraldine DeRuiter | Cyberpunk Summer, ep 4 | FFR 211

On this episode of Cyberpunk Summer, we are discussing TRON, a 1982 adventure film directed by Steven Lisberger and starring Jeff Bridges as a software engineer-turned-arcade owner, who is corporeally transported into cyberspace by a power-hungry computer program. Anita and Kat are joined by acclaimed author, public speaker, and travel writer, Geraldine DeRuiter, to sift through the film’s convoluted plot, and perhaps more importantly, its legacy as one of the earliest movies to use computer-generated animation and groundbreaking technology.
