The MOMENT is a story set on the cusp of the Singularity. The story explores 3 narratives in a dystopian future where brain-computer interfaces are both a source of social threat and potential revelation. The film speaks about our present relationships with each other via social media and its facilitation of rise of far right ideologies.
The MOMENT is an interactive film which uses a Brain Computer Interface to collect attention data from the viewer and recombine into a real time narrative. Each time the film is watched the rhythms of the viewers brain data creates a new narrative combination, in total there are 101 trillion possible combinations. The MOMENT is the second brain controlled film from Writer Director Richard Ramchurn.
The MOMENT is a reaction to the post truth world. It holds up a mirror and reminds people of their own agency, and responsibility.
Technology is being positioned to merge with us: Google’s director of engineering Ray Kurzweil and Elon Musk have both independently stated that for biological intelligence to stay relevant it must merge with machines. This is the subject of great debate in the media, this experience uses the technology to raise awareness of brain computer interfaces and acts as a provocation to their future uses.
The MOMENT is screened in an intimate Mobile Cinema inside a converted caravan.
