Black Mirror Masterclass with Charlie Brooker & Annabel Jones

Black Mirror is an award winning anthology series that taps into our collective unease with the modern world. The House of Tomorrow drama originally launched on Channel 4 to widespread critical acclaim and following the hugely publicised move to Netflix last year, catapulted Brooker, Jones and their dystopian tales from the dark side into the global market.

Exploring contemporary themes of techno paranoia and the horrors of the smartphone era, delegates will hear from creator and writer Charlie Brooker, and executive producer Annabel Jones as they delve into the Black Mirror archives and discuss the origination and continued inspiration behind their satirical, often uncomfortably prophetic televisual phenomenon.
