Watch: Trailer for 'Transcendent Man' Doc on Futurist Ray Kurzweil
Ray Kurzweil is on a journey to bring his ideas to the world. We're featuring this official trailer (via Apple) for a indie documentary called Transcendent Man because I think it looks like an interesting story about the crazy/brilliant man known as Ray Kurzweil, a futurist with the theory of "the Singularity," a point in the near future when technology will be changing so rapidly, that we must enhance ourselves with artificial intelligence to keep up. At the same time, some think he's amassed a cult following and preaches ludicrous ideas, so it looks like there's an even bigger story behind Kurzweil. I'm curious to check it out. Watch below.

Chronicles the life and ideas of Ray Kurzweil, an inventor & futurist with a bold vision of the Singularity.
Transcendent Man is directed by filmmaker Barry Ptolemy, of only a short called The Catch previously. This doc was inspired by Ray Kurzweil's book The Singularity is Near and features original music from composer Philip Glass. This premiered at the AFI Film Festival way back in 2009. Ptolemaic Productions and Therapy Studios independently released Transcendent Man in limited theaters in early February with a national tour currently on-going.
