Conversations on Longevity

WHAT
Sara Kaiser explores our increasing life expectancy. A video imagines a future when people live longer through medically enhanced diets, and an interactive installation invites people to take part in a partly scripted discussion.

WHY
With scientific advancements, our life spans have increased continuously. Some enthusiasts believe that soon we will be able to completely eliminate ageing processes. Predictions like these raise many questions on the moral and ethical consequences of living longer. Sara Kaiser offers a context to explore these.

HOW
The film translates scientific technologies into a fictional narrative. It acts as a teaser for the role play that allows participants to explore different ideas and opinions on life extension.
