"Cyberpunk" (1990) is a documentary by Marianne Trench, featuring William Gibson and Timothy Leary.



Cyberpunk is a fascinating exploration of the real life social and technological consequences of the work of godfather of the cyberpunk movement, novelist William Gibson, who is widely recognized as the leading writer of science fiction which transports today's technology into future urban decay and post punk social mores. The foresight of Gibson's trilogy is revealed in an examination of computer hacking, virtual reality and electronic manipulation and transformation of the human body, as discussed by Gibson, Timothy Leary, Vernon Reid of Living Color and a host of cyberpunk luminaries.
