Wirehead

1997 / Austria / 22min

In our vision of the future, everyone has received a neuronal interface, also called a brainchip. This chip enables direct mental interaction with external computers. A legal pathway into cyberspace is paralleled by illicit forms of virtual reality. The main character in this film is a "terminal addict,” a cyber junkie in the grip of this electronic drug. In the course of the story, the borders between the real and the virtual are obliterated.
