Surviving Progress

Every time history repeats itself the price goes upSURVIVING PROGRESS presents the story of human advancement as awe-inspiring and double-edged. It reveals the grave risk of running our 21st century software – our know-how – 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 a journey to contemplate our evolution from cave-dwellers to space explorers.
