A fascinating and frightening story of how the idea of digital immortality turns into a commercial product. Screening as part of Beat Film Festival 2024.

T

While the general public is discovering the possibilities of ChatGPT, the same technology of large language models opens another futuristic horizon—the dream of immortality, so far embodied in digital form. Digital afterlife is already turning into a full-fledged industry. Is humankind ready for this stage of progress?

Experience that is equal parts enlightening, heartbreaking, and infuriating — much like real grief.

— Kristy Puchko, Mashable

The film tries to answer this question in its entirety and therefore appears to be both a cyberpunk drama and a warning.

The screening will be followed by a discussion with Oksana Moroz, cultural critic and associate professor at the Media Institute of HSE University, and Olga Dogonkina, psychologist at the children’s hospice House with a LighthouseModerator—Konstantin Filonenko, sociologist.
