The celebrated writer behind many of the best documentaries in the last ten years, has joined the creative team behind “The Human Game” documentary. His academy award winning credits “The Cove” and “Icarus.”
Discussing how the ethics, beliefs and ancient wisdom of Buddhism can shape modern biotech sparked many ideas. We sat down with Zen Masters from Sonoma Mountain Zen Center to have a conversation with the founders of Wired magazine and a professor of theology. Jakusho Kwong-roshi and his son Nyoze(如是) Demian Kwong joined Jane Metcalfe and Louis Rossetto with Gaymon Bennett, a Professor of Religion, Science, and Technology at Arizona State University. Together they discussed the fascinating ways that technology and beliefs converge.
Speaking about the history of tech and the “cult” in culture, Gaymon asked: How does one innovate while also working on the shadow?
The shadow doesn’t have to be part of the dark side. It can be part of the light. They go together. Without the shadow, you can’t have the light.Jakusho Kwong-roshi
It was an enlightening experience for all that will shape the conversation of the genomic revolution we are documenting in our film, The Human Game. Watch a behind-the-scenes moment while we filmed this exchange of insight, wisdom and ideas from respected thought leaders.
The Human Game will be on stage at Hello Tomorrow, an international science and tech summit held in Paris March 14-15, 2019 at 11:15 -12:15. Sharing the stage with Jane Metcalfe, founder of Wired Magazine, we will be part of panel discussing the genetic revolution.
It will be 2-days of deeptech, packed with expert panels and visionary keynotes, immersive workshops, and interactive sessions. Once again, The Human Game will partner with Filmstacker to engage the audience in a meaningful and interactive way through video storytelling. The conversations that emerge will likely expand our perception of tomorrow.
A unique event where the brightest entrepreneurs and change-makers meet to build our future.
