Rob Spence isn’t your everyday American. He’s a cyborg. After losing his eye in a shotgun accident, he had it artificially replaced with a camera that records what he sees and even projects it onto a screen.
He draws parallels between the videogame world of Deus Ex and the modern advancements we’re making in our own world to transitioning into a revolutionary transhumanist stage.
Documentary depicts what happened in Rio de Janeiro on June 12th 2000, when bus 174 was taken by an armed young man, threatening to shoot all the passengers.
Transmitted live on all Brazilian TV networks, this shocking and tragic-ending event became one of violence’s most shocking portraits, and one of the scariest examples of police incompetence and abuse in recent years.
The fact that most viewers outside Brazil don’t know how the ordeal ended will add to the suspense, but either way this is a gripping experience.
