THE FILM

In the 1960’s, going to the moon captured humanity’s ambition and imagination.

 

Now, more than fifty years later, the next great frontier that will define humanity -

is inside ourselves.

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?

THE MISSION

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.
