More Human Than Human
Dendy Cinemas Newtown,
Wednesday, April 3 @ 6:30 pm

Featuring an interview with Garry Kasparov and many more AI experts, More Human Than Human explores what it means to live in the age of intelligent machines. In this personal, playful and at times dramatic quest, the filmmaker finds out how much of his creativity and human values are at stake as he builds his own robot to replace himself as a filmmaker. Will artificial intelligence (AI), infinitely smarter, interconnected and possibly self-aware, render humanity obsolete?

Check out the trailer:

Dirt Rich
Dendy Cinemas Newtown,
Wednesday, April 3 @ 8:30 pm

In a world full of catastrophic headlines, we need stories of hope. Dirt Rich showcases the revolutionary new tools and techniques that can help reverse the effects of runaway climate change. Exploring the epic potential of ‘geo-therapy,’ Dirt Rich shows us how, by returning carbon to the earth, we can re-stabilise our climate and revitalise the soils that give us life.
