SuperSapiens
Encore Screening

As artificial intelligence rapidly blurs the boundaries between man and machine, we face an astonishing question: are we witnessing the rise of a new human species? Humanity is facing a turning point — the next evolution of the human mind. Will this evolution be a hybrid of man and machine, where artificial intelligence forces the emergence of a new human species? Or will a wave of new technologists, known as 'consciousness-hackers' become the future torch-bearers, using technology not to replace the human mind, but rather to awaken within it powers we have always possessed. Exploring nascent technology that connects both man and machine and one human mind to another, the film enters a new world where the concept of a collective consciousness created through technology is widely embraced. It foreshadows the end of Homo sapiens and heralds the rise of the mind, bringing with it the birth of a new species – SUPER SAPIENS.
