You are likely to live (and work) much longer than you think. Just look at her three women over 60 who have won Golden Globes and just reached the peak of their careers. Books like 100 Years of Life have helped spread ideas about our longer lifespans and their numbers. Scientists around the world are now vying hard to raise the stakes. Do you want to live another quarter of a century, two and a half centuries, maybe 200 years? Longevity Hackers is a new film aimed at bringing science to mainstream audiences. If you can live to 2045, they claim, you’ll likely reach an age you never imagined possible.
Harvard Medical School professor David Sinclair and the authors of Lifespan have announced that mice can age and rejuvenate by flipping a few genes. Reactions to this controversial body of work vary wildly, and it’s hard for the layman to grasp projections that sound fantastic.
Who wants this ultra-longevity anyway? Looking at the gender of scientists and investors, mostly men, are flocking to this angle of longevity. Including his two men behind this film, director Michal Shewielski and producer Ruben Figueres. “The more immersed we are in the world of longevity, the more hopeful we are for the future. Knowing the progress in this industry highlights the importance of taking care of our health. You can live long and healthy enough to be able to take advantage of the exciting longevity treatments coming your way, aging or even stopping it altogether.The future is bright!”
That’s also the message behind David Sinclair’s research, shown in his latest paper published this week, saying “Aging may be more reversible than we thought.” suggests that He writes that it is driven by changes induced by his DNA damage to the epigenome. This is what is called a “glitch” in the body’s software, causing it to malfunction. This may be fixed with a “reboot”. Sinclair says diseases such as cancer, diabetes and Alzheimer’s disease all have the same underlying epigenetic causes that can be reversed to treat or cure age-related conditions in a single treatment. We think so. Check out Sinclair twitter feed A short video (viewed by over a million people) shows work done in mice that successfully reversed blindness and dysfunctional kidneys by “reprogramming” their DNA. One mouse looks young and healthy, but already one of hers is starting to turn gray around the whiskers like mine.
The excitement is palpable. Produced by New Roots Films, the film was set to release in 2022 but was postponed due to an influx of interest from more celebrities than ever before, wanting to get involved. Scientists, activists and celebrities all want a part of his one action of the astonishing chaos that can occur on our human horizon. It will be the first feature film to bring this controversial and often misunderstood field of longevity science into the mainstream. But they also have a broader mission.
The film seeks to explore this new look at aging as a disease to be cured. It also refutes the idea that aging is a natural and unchanging part of human beings. One of his interviewees for the film, author and ethicist Raiany Romanni, wrote of “human inclinations towards stories that embrace death”: Humanity is heading towards a predetermined, unalterable Telos. “
Under the benevolent gaze of the incumbent 80-year-old American president, the awareness and power of the elderly are slowly increasing. Golden Globe-winning women (Michelle Yeoh, 60, Jennifer Coolidge, 61, and Angela Bassett, 64) were unthinkable just a few years ago in an industry rife with both ageism and sexism. prize. Older Americans, especially women, are learning to age better. Longevity Hackers wants to see this evolution as a whole, showing that it’s just the beginning.
It seems like an oddly difficult message to sell. why?
Longevity PR problem
The film addresses not only aging but also people’s struggles to support their own health and longevity in the future. It should be a fairly obvious and selfish proposition, but people are notoriously bad at predicting the future, even for themselves.
“We don’t think there’s enough focus on advocacy in the longevity space,” said film producer Ruben Figueres. The influx of R&D investment is increasing, but not enough to promote the field of longevity to the mainstream. It’s very niche, sometimes misunderstood and often even obscure. “
Hence the idea of mainstream cinema. An Emmy-nominated television producer and documentary filmmaker, Siewierski is passionate about making a positive difference in the world through his work. After working in the advertising industry for 20 years, he converted and decided to devote the rest of his life to making films that would benefit humanity. His previous films include Food Choices, Diet Fiction and Takeout. Now he is transitioning from his health and nutrition to this moment of longevity.
Promoting longevity, prolonging life and lifestyle
The filmmakers’ mission is to advance the field of longevity and life extension, generate additional exposure (and funding), and accelerate research on anti-aging drugs, treatments, and procedures. They also want to empower individuals with the latest lifestyle and dietary interventions. This could make people more likely to live long and healthy enough to “take advantage of the exciting life-sustaining treatments ahead.” is introduced.

The story seems to be slowly but surely changing. As we emerge from the horrors of the pandemic and early reaping of the old. In the face of so many deaths, the desire to live seems to double. And money is starting to flow in to push the updated longevity narrative into the mainstream. And this week, UK-based startup Restless, her platform online for over 50s, raised her $6.8 million in funding.
Science is advancing rapidly, and the proof is in puddings. As mice visibly begin to shed age and disease, a vibrant aging actress wins awards, and waltzes down her red carpet, millions of people will appreciate her sleek beard and glamor. Fall in love with skirts.
We’ll believe it when we see it, and it’s just starting to show up. Enjoy the movie!
