Subject: Transcendent Man on the life and ideas of Ray Kurzweil to premiere at the Tribeca Film Festival
Transcendent Man, a documentary on the life and ideas of Ray Kurzweil, will premiere on April 25 at the prestigious Tribeca Film Festival in New York City .
See details below for how to get tickets to one of the premiere screenings.
Director Barry Ptolemy traveled to five countries and followed Ray Kurzweil for two years, documenting Kurzweil's journey to bring the ideas from his best-selling book The Singularity is Near to a world audience. Ptolemy expertly explores the social and philosophical implications of the transformative changes that Kurzweil predicts and their intertwined promise and peril, in dialogues with world leaders such as Colin Powell; technologists Hugo de Garis, Peter Diamandis, Kevin Warwick, and Dean Kamen; journalists Kevin Kelly and Tom Abate; and luminary Stevie Wonder. Award-winning American composer Philip Glass composed the original theme music, which mirrors the depth and intensity of the film.
The movie trailer can be seen at http://www.TranscendentMan.com <http://cts.vresp.com/c/?KurzweilTechnologies/bf522996f8/c110c9db1e/ce8f9ad241> .
Tribeca is one of the four leading film festivals in the world. Only 24 movies (12 documentaries and 12 narrative movies) are selected to premiere and compete at Tribeca, out of more than 2,200 movies submitted for consideration. Transcendent Man was one of only two documentaries discussed by the New York Times in its coverage of the upcoming Tribeca festival.
A sample of the extensive coverage of the upcoming premiere:
The world premiere will be on Saturday evening, April 25 at 8 pm. The Tuesday, April 28 screening will be followed by a unique Tribeca event: a panel discussion with Director Barry Ptolemy and Ray Kurzweil, moderated by NPR and ABC correspondent Robert Krulwich.
