HOW WE THOUGHT TO CYBERPUNK IN 90S, just named Cyberpunk, is a 1990 documentary by Marianne Trench about the cyberpunk culture and it’s aspects. It covers topics such as hacking, virtual reality, mind machines, implants, cyber arts, literature, music, and it features interviews with

William Gibson, Dr. Timothy Leary and various other people like Joseph M. Rosen MD., Dr. Scott Fisher, Michael Synergy and more.

This copy was downloaded from and I highly recommend that you download it from there too because you will be able to watch it in it’s natural 60fps form.

Unfortunately, I had to remove a snippet of Front 242’s Headhunter video from the documentary because if I left it in there the documentary would be taken down.

This documentary has been uploaded purely for the purpose of educating and entertaining.
