‘What is humanity?’ In this revealing documentary, world experts in the fields of Futurology, Anthropology, Neuroscience, and Philosophy consider the impact of technological advances on the two certainties of human life; Work and Death. Charting human developments from Homo Habilis, past the Industrial Revolution, to the digital age and beyond, THE FUTURE OF WORK AND DEATH looks at the shocking exponential rate at which mankind has managed to create technologies to ease the process of living. As we embark on the next phase of our adaptation, with automation and Artificial Intelligence signifying the complete move from man to machine, this film asks what the implications are for the human purposeful fulfilment, making money and ageless immortality. In its combination of archival footage, infographics and interviews, directors Sean Blacknell and Wayne Walsh’s debut feature gives us a provoking and shockingly realistic look into the future of human life. With commentary from author Will Self, futurist Techno-Philosopher Gray Scott, and biomedical gerontologist Aubrey de Grey, among a host of other knowledgeable but endearingly eccentric experts in their fields, the information presented and arguments made are profoundly insightful, often astonishing and always engaging.
