Open iTunes to preview, buy, and download this movie.
Technocalyps is an intriguing three-part documentary on the notion of Trans-humanism by Belgian visual artist and filmmaker Frank Theys. The latest findings in genetics, robotics, artificial intelligence, bionics and nanotechnology appear in the media every day, but with no analysis of what seems to be their common aim: exceeding human limitations and creating higher, trans-human forms of life. Technocalyps presents a thorough and critical enquiry into the scientific, ethical and metaphysical dimensions of technological development. The film includes interviews by top scientists and thinkers on the subject worldwide, such as Marvin Minsky, Ray Kurzweil, Terence McKenna, Hans Moravec, Bruce Sterling, Robert Anton Wilson, David Noble, Margaret Wertheim, the Dalai Lama and many others.
