Upon fathering triplets, filmmaker Avi Zev Weider explores the nature of technology, revealing that all its discussions are about what it means to be human.
After three years of trying to have a child, filmmaker Avi Zev Weider and his wife Alexandra tried IVF and immediately became pregnant with triplets.In grappling with this life-changing experience, it was evident that technology was having a real affect on Avis life; his babies were conceived via a technical process, born in a high-tech neo-natal intensive care unit and kept alive inside a series of machines. In short, Avis children came into this world and were made viable thanks to technology. But beyond that, the way in which Avi found himself relating to his newborn children even this was colored by a relationship to technology. And so, much bigger questions, ones difficult to even formulate, loomed large as the triplets came home.In seeking to clarify these questions, and deal with his new and difficult reality, the filmmaker engages futurists, scientists, scholars, anti-technology advocates and even Ted Kaczynski, aka the Unabomber, to uncover a big-picture view of our ongoing relationship to technology. These interviews explore issues like:What is the origin of technology?Is technology neutral or does is have an intent?In a world of high technology, what is the value of living things?Intertwined with these interviews are two stories that explore how technology is literally changing our worldviews and physical reach. In one, the audience gets up close to US Army pilots training to remotely command unmanned aerial vehicles - drones by sitting for long stretches inside a machine. In the second story we meet Dean Lloyd, who at age 68, is one of only a handful of people implanted with the Argus II artificial retina. Blinded at age 24, Dean now has a microchip directly attached to his optic nerve and can once again see the world with the help of a machine inside of him.Continually circling back to his own story, the filmmaker leads the audience through what is, in essence, a theological discussion of technology. In using his own life as a focal point, Avi Zev Weider weaves WELCOME TO THE MACHINE into an experience that begins as an abstract intellectual discussion about technology but ends up being a very human and emotional journey for himself as well as the audience.
