“Does the mystery of an irrational entity require unraveling?” What would our world be like if humans were replaced by advanced Artificial Intelligence beings? Endling imagines exactly that kind of upcoming future, following two beings taking the remains of the last human to be buried. They drive an impressive classic Corvette, which the human used to own. It’s an intriguing, low key sci-fi film about A.I. in which they discuss the many flaws of humanity and how emotions rule us. Martin Challinor and Jasmin Hoinka star as the two A.I. beings. This isn’t the best short you’ll ever see, but it’s somewhat creative and makes you think about our place on this planet. Will we ever evolve beyond the human condition? Only time will tell…
