-UK Film Review

The Future of Work and Death tackles the big questions about the exponential growth of technology and where it is taking us. Future technology could significantly change the two inevitable features of the human experience; punching the clock and fading away. This controversial doco explores how technological advances over the next 30 years could cause job obsolescence; how digital immortality may not be a thing of science fiction. But are we ready to work less and live longer? Does working less mean living more and is ending ageing incumbent on us? Worldwide experts in the fields of futurology, anthropology, neuroscience and philosophy share their thoughts on the lives of future generations.

Followed by a Q &A with Damien Ivereigh, Launtel, founder of the Blue Ocean Giga-bit service.
