    • Synopsis
    • Until recently, only religions seemed able to grant Mankind an Eternal Life.But today, the efforts of science and the breakthroughs of biotech allow us to envision attaining immortality in this life rather than afterwards.
      As the baby-boomers get into their sixties, the most powerful generation ever is hellbent on delaying what they are many millions to consider an untimely finitude.
      « We want to live forever ! » is the new rally cry of this flock which came of age in the swinging sixties, got rich in the eighties, got conservative in the 90’s and turns senior now.
      They demand physical immortality and a posse of visionnaries, entrepreneurs and scientists are in a frenzied race to try and give it to them.
      From Seoul to Boston, from Paris to Las Vegas, « A Life Lived Forever » tells the story of these amazing characters setting the way for bleeding edge science and the ultimate quest of Mankind : Applied Immortality.
      At stake is the nature of humanity itself, the destiny of every single human living today and the wealth of a few people and companies rushing to succeed in taping boomers’ savings to sell them tickets to a life beyond their 100’s.
