Thirty years ago, Professor Genevieve Bell left Australia to study anthropology in America. That journey took her to the heart of Silicon Valley, where she pioneered futurist research at Intel, looking at how different cultures use technology. Now she’s returned home with an urgent conversation about the role of technology in building our future, and what it means to be human, and Australian, in a digital world. – ABC

The Golem (1920, Ger.) (aka Der Golem) directed by Paul Wegener
He directed three influential adaptations of the Golem legend by Gustav Meyrinck:
- Der Golem (1914, Ger.) (aka The Monster of Fate)
- Der Golem Und Die Tanzerin (1917, Ger.) (aka The Golem and the Dancer) – notably the first horror film sequel
- Der Golem (1920, Ger.) (aka The Golem: or How He Came Into the World),with Karl Freund as cinematographer
The first expressionistic film was based upon Central European myths and influenced later ‘Frankenstein’ monster films in the early 1930s with themes of a creator losing control of his creation. The Golem, played by Wegener himself, was an ancient clay figure from Hebrew mythology that was brought to life by Rabbi Loew’s magic amulet to defend and save the Jews in 16th century Prague from a pogrom threatened by Rudolf II of Habsburg.
The giant man-made, clay creature roamed and lumbered through the Jewish ghetto of medieval Prague to protect it from persecution.
