At the Cryonics Institute, hope for the future is high, and death is put on ice

‘I think the future’s going to be kinder and gentler than the present.’

Located in an unassuming building outside Detroit, the Cryonics Institute houses more than 100 ‘metabolically challenged’ patients who died with the hope for another shot at life – even if it was a long one. In this short documentary, the US directors Myles Kane and Josh Koury astutely weave an inside look at the cryogenic freezing process with an examination of the ethical and moral controversies surrounding cryonics to provide a complex portrait of the institute’s leaders, who, like their patients, hope that future scientists might one day bring them back to life.
