Storyline

Posthumanismaniarama! is a short film exploring the increasingly blurred line between human and machine. Through a series of vignettes, we follow the evolution of our relationship with technology, up to the present and beyond. At times unsettling and darkly comedic, this short wrestles with the looming issues of singularity, robotics, and the future of mankind. Will these changes and fusions push human existence into an enlightened age or will we be left in the digital dust? Written by Anonymous

Doesn't really have much to say
5 November 2015 | by See all my reviews

A series of short scenes play out over decades of time. We start with a young couple waiting for a picture taking 5 minutes to open on their computer, skip through a Steve Jobs-esque character launching a new phone, through to biocomputers and the full integration of human and machine.

In doing these small scenes there is the brave attempt for this short to be Black Mirror but at a faster speed. The series does cautionary tales about technology very well, and I guess in some way that is what the film is trying to do. Shame then that there is not really enough here to do that, and that it takes too long to do it. The opening few scenes will probably lose most viewers as they offer very little; the first one is a reminder of the slowness of the internet when it was dialup, then we get a phone announcement – neither scene offering a great deal in commentary or insight. In the future there is perhaps a bit more of interest, and indeed these scenes play out a bit better, but still without too much to actually say or draw the viewer in.

It looks pretty good (particularly one decent effects sequence near the end) but mostly it is the lack of things to really say that limit the film and ultimately end up making it a not particularly amusing series of sketches
