William Gibson - No Maps for these Territories

William Gibson - visionary writer, author of 'Neuromancer' and creator of the term 'cyberspace' - is the subject of this unusual and absorbing documentary that follows him on a limousine ride across the United States. Wearing dark sunglasses and smoking a cigarette, Gibson comments on a wide range of subjects, from pornography to drugs, from his personal history to religion and his take on the cyber-technology he invisaged. Literary mentor William S Burroughs, Bono and The Edge from U2 also appear, reading passages from Gibson's work and providing musical interpretations of his writings.
