Meet several of the world's first "cyborgs" - a hospital-bound tetraplegic, a blind retiree, and an artist with Parkinson’s - and the scientists and entrepreneurs on a quest to unlock the secrets of the brain.
As these pioneers grapple with the unique opportunities of advanced brain technology, we’re forced to reconcile with the larger implications: will the same technologies that heal the sick allow us to develop super human abilities, communicate telepathically, and enhance our own cognition?
I Am Human is the story of a quiet revolution defining the future of humanity. As we march down a new evolutionary path, age old questions take on a new twist:
Who are we?
What might we become?
And, perhaps most importantly, are we ready?
Eighty-five billion neurons.
Two and a half years.
Thirty two scientists.
Make brain science
the new rocket science.
Our mission is for viewers to challenge assumptions about the co-evolution of humans and technology, and ultimately - what it means to be human.
The film was shot entirely on anamorphic lenses, enhanced with obscured natural light, stark contrasts, and symmetrical tableaus of a traditional sci-fi aesthetic. An ethereal soundscape and original score capture the evolution of technology’s place in the natural world...and within ourselves.
