.
 TECHNOCALYPS
  A documentary feature by Frank Theys

  10 May (Premiere) 12 & 13 Antwerpen, 26 & 27 Brussels

Are we prepared for dealing with the prospect that humanity is not the
end of evolution?

?Technocalyps? is an intriguing three-part documentary on the notion of
transhumanism 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 their common aim: that of exceeding human limitations. Frank Theys
conducts his enquiry into the scientific, ethical and metaphysical
dimensions of technological development. The film includes interviews by
top experts and thinkers on the subject worldwide, including Marvin
Minsky, Terence McKenna, Hans Moravec, Bruce Sterling, Robert Anton
Wilson, Richard Seed, Margareth Wertheim, Kirkpatrick Sale, Ralph C.
Merkle, Mark Pesce, Ray Kurzweil, Lama Karta, Rabbi Youssouf Kazen, Rael
and many more.
