Alteration – Jerôme Blanquet
Winner Tribeca BEST NARRATIVE DESIGN
Continuing the theme of near-future tragedy, Alteration is the story of a man who volunteers for an experiment in recording dreams and memories.
When he begins, he finds himself haunted by a fledgling artificial intelligence named Elsa, who is seeking to learn about the world through human memories. Soon, though, her observations of him descend into a kind of emotional vampirism. Creator Jérôme Blanquet isn’t making a cautionary tale so much as a fever dream, exploring what it might look like if present-day AIs’ mass data mining got very, very personal.
