Description

Fereidoun M. Esfandiary was a world-renowned author, futurist, and considered the father of Transhumanism. He accurately predicted tele-banking, gene therapy, 3D printing, and was so convinced that by the year 2030 there would be a “post-human” world where no problem was insurmountable, he officially changed his name to “FM 2030.” In 1999, FM 2030 was diagnosed with cancer. Without a way to see the world of 2030 naturally, he turned to science and had his brain cryogenically suspended - preserved and waiting for the future.Filmmaker Johnny Boston was only 10 years old when he first met FM, a meeting that evolved into a lifelong friendship. When Johnny learns years later that scientists are going to attempt the world’s first reanimation of a cryopreserved brain – that of his friend FM 2030 – he fights fiercely and with at times conflicting motivations for his own access to document the process. 2030 is that journey. Not quite a biopic or an homage or even a traditional documentary, 2030 is an engaging docu-drama with thriller and sci-fi flourishes that seeks to answer the deeply philosophical question “What will it mean to be human when technology has finally given us a world where no one dies?”
