  28. USA 2020
    Directed by: Mitch McGlocklin
    Dialogue language: English

    A life insurance company uses an AI algorithm to determine the risk of a new applicant. The subsequent denial sparks a period of introspection for the individual in question. "Forever" was created using the experiential technique of using LiDAR to capture real life moments. The LiDAR unit used to acquire the footage was originally created for self-driving cars. This junction of technology and film making intersects with the subject of the film. AI uses LiDAR to "see" humanity in accurate detail, but has resolution limitations. In both story and style, "Forever" explores the boundary of advanced technology and the human experience.
