Never Say Die: Cryonics and Immortality
Brooklyn Underground Films
The future is here– but the cure hasn’t arrived yet.
Cryonics is an effort to save lives by using temperatures so cold that a person beyond help by today’s medicine might be preserved for decades or centuries until a future medical technology can restore that person to full health.
Cryonics sounds like science fiction, but it is based on modern science. Presently, it’s an experiment in the most literal sense of the word.
We Will Live Again takes an unusual and extraordinary peek into the operations of the Cryonics Institute.
We follow Ben Best and Andy Zawacki as they maintain the 99 deceased human bodies stored at below-freezing temperatures in cryopreservation, awaiting the day when theoretically they will be revived to life and hoisted into the immortality of a coming age.
Meanwhile, cryonics movement founder Robert Ettinger, long-retired from overseeing operations at the Institute, still lives nearby, self-publishing books on cryonics and awaiting the end of this life– and eagerly anticipating the next.
What does the future hold for you?
