SYNOPSIS: 2030 is a film that defies easy categorization. FM 2030 (yes, this is his legal name) was an author, futurist and self-described transhuman who died in 2000. Or did he? His body was cryogenically frozen and stored in a facility in Arizona. This is his story. Or rather, it is the story of documentary filmmaker Johnny Boston’s attempt to make a film about 2030. Is it science or science fiction? Facts or fantasies? Plots or paranoia? While the film seems to relish its conundrum–within–a-riddle–wrapped–in–enigma posturing, 2030 makes for fun watching and provokes thinking on a mind-warping, deeply philosophical level. —Jeff Morris
