Long for This World is a feature-length documentary that explores the life extension movement.
This character-driven documentary follows three scientists who share one goal: to develop medical technologies that will vastly increase life expectancy. Bill Andrews, founder of biotech company Sierra Sciences and a 60-year-old ultra-marathoner; Terry Grossman, a top anti-aging physician catering to patients who want to live forever; and Aubrey de Grey, a Cambridge-educated biogerontologist, all have dedicated their lives trying to create an infinite future for humanity.
But is life extension even possible? And if it is, what are the political, ethical, and economic implications of it?
Through a mix of intimate interviews and observational footage, Long for This World explores these interlocking questions and encourages debate on the claims and concerns surrounding the life extension movement.
