Several new commissioned works were premiered as part of this year's Sloan Film Summit. We now have two of the shorts available on the site. Both were created by pairing filmmakers with scientists prominent in their respective fields.
First, check out Implant by Casey Cooper Johnson and Casey Fenton. Working alongside hacker Ralph Echemendia, Implant travels to an unsettling future where micro chips are implanted into the brain, closing with a chilling twist as a woman is forced to kill when her chip is hacked.
Then watch Jenny Deller's Containing Addiction. Paired with Jessica Cail, whose research is focused on the long term effects of addiction on the body, Deller’s documentary short asks two addicts to consider their former habits, comparing how they live now to their previous destructive lifestyles.
