The found footage collage film Copy Complete deals with how cinema presented the computer in the 70s, 80s and 90s. Professional acts of espionage, family dramas or early chat romances playing out on a PC: across all genres, the fascination for new technology was evident in film-making before the turn of the millennium. Using split screens, Auerbach builds the found footage into a wild audiovisual ride through the nascent years of the digital age.
