Accept our invitation to the third part of the documentary miniseries, which will once again take you to the futuristic environment of cyberpunk, a world of dystopian society with technological and scientific advances such as artificial intelligence or cybernetics. This time, we will engage with cyberspace through hacker culture and, of course, the internet, which began to change our world significantly in the 1990s and connect us through the information superhighway. We started to look more into virtual reality as well. We will once again look at the world of cyberpunk through novels, philosophical works, comics, films, computer games, and television. For example, do you remember the films Network (1995), Death’s Head (1998) or Johnny Mnemonic (1995)? Did you get your hands on the book Snow Crash (1992) by American writer Neal Stephenson or the book Virtual Light (1993) by William Gibson? Or did you rather become a player of the successful 1994 computer game System Shock? Either way, we must not forget the highly successful film that significantly and, moreover, globally changed our view of the nature of reality itself – The Matrix (1999).
