The search for immortality is as old as humanity. One of the first documented attempts to defeat death was the Epic of Gilgamesh, where in the end Gilgamesh discovers that “The life that you are seeking you will never find. When the gods created man they allotted to him death, but life they retained in their own keeping.”

Long For This World: Live Forever or Die Trying is an upcoming documentary about the contemporary quest for, and the science and philosophy behind, finding the fountain of youth. It is a film by Jason Sussberg and David Alvarado that follows the work of three scientists such as Aubrey de Grey and Terry Grossman, who are working to turn science fiction into reality and help us reach indefinite lifespans.
