app: the human story

App: The Human Story is about my people. It’s a loving portrait of a culture that I adore and the people who make it go. The film deftly threads together stories and ideas from the communities and craftspeople who dedicate their lives to the common goal of empowering humanity through software. And by the end, the viewer senses a rich tapestry of tension and triumph that make up the universe of this new cultural unit of progress—the app—and the reasons why it will propel us into a better future.

Can see this appealing to a few of you.

SEAM – The Film

In the not-too-distant future, a tenuous peace between humans and remarkably humanlike “machines”—some don’t even know they’re not real—is tested when synthetics begin spontaneously exploding. A military-led search for these unwitting suicide bombers begins, sending a terrified machine woman and her human partner on the run.

Superb. Thanks to Bob.

AWAKEN

AWAKEN is a feature documentary film from director Tom Lowe exploring humanity’s relationship with technology and the natural world. AWAKEN is a celebration of the spirit of life, an exploration of the Earth, and an ode to the Cosmos.

Oh wow.

Watch The Host

As far as movie monsters went, the one at the center of The Host was a weird one—a wicked mean salamander with a mouth that had way too many hinges and teeth and a long grabby tail. The result of a chemical dump into the Han River by American military scientists, the monster isn’t really a huge, city-razing threat. Instead, it’s a ravenous amphibian the size of a bus, able to slip away in the water and largely out of sight for much of the movie’s run time… More at GQ.

There must be many classics hidden in Netflix and other services. Not sure this is one of them though;)
