What is scienceFUTURE
scienceFUTURE is a web-based collaborative documentary experiment which explores how scientists imagine the future. Scientists will collectively invent the life story of X, a woman of the future, born in 2045. ʻXʼ is the chromosome all humans share and also the universal unknown in mathematics. X could be your grandchild or great-grandchild.
scienceFUTURE is being developed by filmmaker Christine Cynn (co-director of the award-winning documentary THE ACT OF KILLING) with producer Kristian Mosvold (Substans Film AS, Norway), executive producer Tishna Molla (Bandit HQ, UK) and John Arvid Berger (JABfilm, Norway).
This short animated film explains the concept behind scienceFUTURE.
