I Am Human is a sci-fi documentary chronicling humanity’s quiet march down a new evolutionary path…where man and machine merge as one. Meet Anne, Bill, and Stephen – three of the world’s first humans with brain computer interfaces – and the scientists and entrepreneurs on a quest to unlock the secrets of the human brain. As the subjects each grapple with the unique opportunities and challenges of their implantable technology, we’re forced to reconcile with the larger societal implications. Will the same technology that heals the sick lead to super human abilities, telepathic communication, and cognitive enhancement? How will this change what it means to be human…and most importantly, are we ready?
