‘2B – The Era of Flesh is Over’ film to premiere at Woodstock Film Festival …


2B – The Era of Flesh is Over,” a science-fiction film set in the near future, will have its world premiere at the 10th anniversary Woodstock Film Festival in Woodstock, NY on Friday, Oct. 2, 2009. A panel discussion, “Redesigning Humanity — The New Frontier,” moderated by bioethicist James J. Hughes, including Ray Kurzweil, 2B film executive producer Martine Rothblatt, and author Wendell Wallach and streamed live, will explore how AI, nanotech, genetic engineering and other technologies will allow human beings to transcend the limitations of the body and fundamentally change the world over the coming 50 years. 2B portrays a decaying world on the cusp of great transformation. When the world’s first transhuman is created by a renegade corporate CEO and bioscientist, the foundations of society’s beliefs are threatened in a transhuman world where man merges with technology.
