It’s vital to adopt a posture of arrogant superiority; instead of scurrying into a corner and wailing about what media are doing to us, one should charge straight ahead and kick them in the electrodes.

Picnic in Space

Dir: Bruce Bacon 1967 28mins


Picnic in Space is a rare jewel of a film in which McLuhan banters with his long time cohort Harley Parker. The film sees McLuhan expounding on ‘space’ and its properties, while lying in a field somewhere in Canada. Amusing, classic and a period piece of McLuhan ephemera.
