As a filmmaker, I feel like it is my duty to confront the challenges that surround us. CAPIO is a science fiction feature film about how our society’s unconditional love of technology leaves us vulnerable to political and economical manipulation and loss of privacy and freedom.
The explosive growth of the online world has changed not just our lifestyle, but also the way we relate to each other and perceive the world around us. My film offers a vision of a near-future world in which our digital dependency threatens to make us all less human.
And once a technology has insinuated itself into our lives without restrictions or oversight, it can become nearly impossible to tear ourselves free again.
By relying too heavily on algorithms, humans stand to lose their ability to understand each other or develop solutions for society’s problems.
It is only by being free to make and learn from mistakes that humans can continue to evolve.
I believe that films may not be able to change society, but they can inspire the people who can create a change.
