Transhumanism - the international movement to improve humanity by means of ever advancing technology - is the target of this brilliant and subversive short film by Casey Duke Feldman.
The short is actually a series of vignettes that take place in different settings around the globe, in various time periods.
From the earliest days of dial-up internet in 1996, to the speculated future of 2050 where nanotechnology has become deeply interwoven into the fabric of everyday life, Posthumanismaniarama! explores our storied relationship and obsession with technology through the lens of satire.
A prime example (also a film highlight) is the send-up of Apple's infamous product launches.
After the exhortation of each device's ever more sleeker, faster, and powerful specs, the crowd erupts into an almost orgasmic furor.

With it's darkly comedic and thoughtful commentary, Posthumanismaniarama! poses significant questions about the future of our increasingly complex relationship with technology.
