True stories/false realities. 
Look under the hood of existence - but only if you dare. 

Imagine waking up to find out that we are living in a simulation, and the world as we know it is not real.  
 
To tackle this mind-bending idea, acclaimed filmmaker Asher (Room 237, The Nightmare) uses a noted speech from Philip K. Dick to dive down the rabbit hole of science, philosophy, and conspiracy theory. Leaving no stone unturned in exploring the unprovable, the film uses contemporary cultural touchstones like The Matrix, interviews with real people shrouded in digital avatars, and a wide array of voices, expert and amateur alike. If simulation theory is not science fiction but fact, and life is a video game being played by some unknown entity, then who are we, really? A Glitch in The Matrix attempts to find out. 

Inspire(s) a healthy, atypical curiosity, not so much about whether we are indeed living in a simulation, but as to who else out there also thinks that their keys are missing due to something larger than human error.  
Nick Allen, Roger Ebert
