Transhumanist quest!
14 April 2017 | by superspeedwaySee all my reviews

The film focuses on the various emerging technologies that Transhumanism has coalesced around and feature illuminating (or potentially terrifying) interviews with scientists working in these fields. It is a really smart look at humanity's quest for immortality through science. It gets into how this quest effects art and culture and how the whole mess intersects to form the very fabric of who we are.
