AI judgment causes a period of introspection

A stunning exploration of the technologic future of our society, Forever opens with filmmaker and narrator Mitch McGlocklin being denied life insurance by an AI algorithm. As he reflects on this rejection, his insights shift from the personal to the profound, quietly signaling to audiences how far we’ve come as a society, from revering deities to revering machines. Watching this film is like being transported 30 years into the future, where God isn’t just dead – he’s been wiped from the servers completely.
