We Are All Cylons
Running Time 42:40 min
A transmission, grounded as an entertainment, begins. Its dynamic message connects with people throughout the world. The viewer, who then becomes a fan, is compelled to spread and share the message. The story leaks in to the real world because it resonates with real lives — a feedback loop of projection on the transmission medium has been created.
The word enthusiasm comes from entheos, meaning "having god within." We Are All Cylons investigates our very human enthusiasm for technology and myth by examining the metaphysical resonances of the television series Battlestar Galactica.
This project is motivated in part by the intersections of technology and culture at the level of the individual, and the impact of these intersections on our lives.
Specifically, We Are All Cylons explores the possibility of technological and biological immanence — transcendence manifest in the material world — and its circulation outward from its apparent science-fiction source.
A documentary point-of-view provides an opportunity to confront central questions about our humanity, our susceptibility to myth, the fungible nature of our own identities, and what makes us human in the digital age.
