Storyline

Humanity is facing a turning point - the next evolution of the human mind. Will this evolution be a hybrid of man and machine, where artificial intelligence forces the emergence of a new human species? Or will a wave of new technologists, who frame themselves as consciousness-hackers, become the future torch-bearers, using technology not to replace the human mind, but rather awaken within it powers we have always possessed?

SUPERSAPIENS heads hard towards the event horizon of AI looking at the current state of technology and asking who is driving these advances and what are the real-world consequences of creating a mind more advanced than our own? In parallel, the film meets the young and innovative thinkers who apply 21st century technology to the quest of unlocking our own ancient and in-born mind-abilities.

Excellent and Enlightening
8 June 2017 | by Howard GlasserSee all my reviews

SuperSapiens beautifully unfolds the premise and promise of what's on the horizon as a result of our fascination and propagation of technology. Is turning a blind eye an option? Does the marriage of technology and humanity have a life of its own or can those who have the long view get to steer the vehicle to a win-win and the promise of a greater future. Markus Mooslechner created a brilliant film that leads us to the precipice of duality of disaster vs greatness. This is a must see.
