New Cinema from Québec, Canada
Surviving Progress, by Mathieu Roy (90’)
On the occasion of the special event New Cinema from Québec, Canada, Mathieu Roy will present his documentary Surviving Progress. The film presents the story of human advancement as awe-inspiring and double-edged. It reveals the grave risk of running the 21st century’s software — our knowhow— on the ancient hardware of our primate brain which hasn’t been upgraded in 50,000 years. With rich imagery and immersive soundtrack, filmmakers Mathieu Roy and Harold Crooks launch us on journey to contemplate our evolution from cave-dwellers to space explorers.
