Some Forgotten Calculation

Montana Premiere

Some Forgotten Calculation is a lyrical and experimental documentary that traces the strange origins of computer science in 19th century England. Following the writings of Charles Babbage, the inventor of the first computer, we are drawn in a complex world of idiosyncratic thought and an obsession with the nuisance of street musicians. Using archival footage, rich layered patterns, as well as documentary footage from Silicon Valley, Some Forgotten Calculation is a reflection on the eccentric minds that created the technology that shapes out lives today.
