The digital revolution has undoubtedly changed our world and politics. The Internet has strengthened the rights of the individual. Today we have access to an unlimited collection of information, which has fundamentally changed our approach to social and economic life. We can easily contact other people across the world. These are fundamental changes and we have only just started to learn the scale and repercussions of them. But have they strengthened democracy?

Lately, bigger and bigger dissonance between the speed of digital development and the traditional way of operating political and administration mechanisms can be observed.

FULL DESCRIPTION OF THE EVENT

Coming at a moment of profound political and social crisis, ”What Is Democracy?” reflects on a word we take for granted too often. Director Astra Taylor’s idiosyncratic, philosophical journey spans millennia and continents: from ancient Athens’ groundbreaking experiment in self-government to capitalism’s roots in medieval Italy; from modern-day Greece grappling with financial collapse and a mounting refugee crisis to the United States reckoning with its racist past and the growing gap between rich and poor.

Featuring a diverse cast—including celebrated theorists, trauma surgeons, activists, factory workers, asylum seekers, and former prime ministers—this urgent film connects the past and the present, the emotional and the intellectual, the personal and the political, in order to provoke and inspire. If we want to live in democracy, we must first ask what the word even means.

”More Human Than Human” explores what it means to live in the age of intelligent machines. In this personal, playful and at times dramatic quest, the filmmaker finds out how much of his creativity and human values are at stake as he builds his own robot to replace himself as a filmmaker.

More than just an exposé on the pros and cons of new technology, the filmmaker’s journey takes him to the world’s leading AI experts and robot pioneers confronting them with existential questions such as: will AI, infinitely smarter, interconnected and possibly self-aware, render humanity obsolete?
