  • Happy New Year, Jim

    Ajyal Competition - Ajyal Film Festival 2022

    It’s New Year’s Eve. Friends Jim and Morten are playing online video games all night long, like every day. But something’s not sitting well with Morten tonight. He’s become uncomfortable with the realism of the digital world and the preprogrammed destinies of characters in their games. These persistent thoughts set off a fascinating series of questions to a bewildered Jim about the ethics of artificial intelligence, the direction of technological advancement and ultimately, an existential crisis about the nature of reality itself.
