Welt am Draht / World on a Wire (1973) DVD5 + DVD9
Scientists at IKZ (Institute for Cybernetics and Futurology) have built computer-simulated reality populated by 8,000 "identity units", which are essentially computer programs constructed of digital information that are unaware of the true nature of their existence. Within IKZ’s virtual reality, these units think that they are human and, for all intents and purposes, behave as if they were.
When the director of research dies under mysterious circumstances, his replacement suspects a corporate conspiracy aimed at virtual reality.
