Speaking of the new episodes, Brooker said that he was prepared for the surprise of at least one of his stories from the new season coming true in the future.
“Weirdly there was one news story I read the other day that I thought ‘Oh, how does that reflect on an episode we’ve already finished shooting?’” Brooker said. “There was some new discovery made. Hopefully not, but then when writing them I never think any of these are going to come true, and then it seems like some of them do -which is a bit worrisome, generally.
“For this coming season they’re quite far out there so I don’t envisage that being a problem. Although if that does happen the world is really fucked… well, the world is really fucked, so we’ll see.”
The entrance hall of the arts venue featured a six-foot video installation recreating scenes from Black Mirror episode ‘Fifteen Million Merits’.
The episode in question, which was the second episode of season one, depicted a dystopian world where people are reality TV wannabes who spend their lives trying to earn enough “merits” to have an opportunity at fame. It starred Get Out actor Daniel Kaluuya.
