Almost Human

Denmark, United Kingdom / 2020 / documentary / 47' / Docs+Science

A poignant cross-genre picture focused on questions about the nature of the relationship between man and technology. A team of ten researchers, including philosophers, anthropologists and programmers, seeks answers to them. Their explorations reach the point where human intelligence ends and artificial intelligence begins. Have we already created a new Frankenstein? If yes, will he destroy us? Or maybe he will love us? Danish director Jeppe Rønde does not give us any ready-made interpretations. He assumes that asking questions is the most interesting. Before he became a filmmaker, Rønde was a professional musician. The ability to use melody and rhythm translates into the visual language.
