How can dreams be seen? What about thoughts? Could we be able to transfer them from one person to another through a machine or store them? What dangers lie behind the developments in neuroscience and their possible commercial exploitation? What are the ethical limits we face as humans in the race for knowledge and control of emotions and feelings?
Brainstorm Project, Douglas Trumbull, USA, 1983
Scientists Michael Brace and Lillian Reynolds have developed a system for recording and replaying experiences and feelings that can be transferred from one person to another. It is a revolutionary discovery, with great potential, which quickly becomes dangerous, because not all of its possible applications are ethical.
A visonary cyberpunk thriller, starring Christopher Walken and Natalie Wood.
