SYNOPSIS

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 a biotech company 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, have dedicated their lives to creating 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?


 
 
 
The age-old search for the fountain of youth is engagingly appraised in The Immortalists.
