Storyline

Meet Bill, Anne, and Stephen - three of the world's first real-world "cyborgs." Bill, paralyzed in a biking accident, enrolls in a mysterious research study in hopes to regain movement, while Anne, an artist with Parkinson's, and Stephen, a witty blind retiree, reluctantly explore invasive procedures to regain independence. As the patients each grapple with the unique opportunities and risks of implanting chips in their brain, scientists face pressing technical and ethical quandaries: will the same technology that heals the sick lead to super human abilities, telepathic communication, and cognitive enhancement? From the research lab to the operating table, I AM HUMAN unpacks the emerging complexity, real world possibilities and vast implications of humanity's quiet new march down a new evolutionary path.

This film brings insider-only neuroscience to the rest of us
4 March 2020 | by katie-75861See all my reviews

You don't know what you don't know and I had no idea what progress scientists have made in treating people with Parkinson's, people who are severely paralyzed, blind, and more. All with brain interface technology that seems like it should be light years away!

This film, beautifully shot, truly boggles the mind as we get to see inside the lives of patients being given new never experienced independents with brain interfaces. You also will get to meet some internationally acclaimed scientists and technologists. Really, really cool things happening, folks!!
