Film is a mirror of our society and our time. Augmented Society is a project which aims to showcase the ways in which film can shed light on reality.

The concept is simple – we invite various people to pass comment on topical issues and trends in society based around a film which has given them insight, knowledge or a deeper understanding.

Those of you who wish are also welcome to contribute your own film tips, reflections and comments by using the comment button.

Editor of Augmented Society is Emma Gray Munthe. Contact her at
