Every human being has his own knowledge, skills, intelligence. Imagine if you could share them. This is what the Wachowski ( Matrix filmmakers ) have implemented in their new TV series called Sense8.
The title tells us a lot about the blurb. Indeed it’s a play on words : sense8 means sensate and it’s a synonym of aware .
The story revolves around eight people, spread throughout the world, which suddenly become connected intellectually, emotionally and sensorially .The show explores themes that its directors believe to be generally ignored by the series of science fiction, including politics, identity, sexuality, gender and religion.
Here is a a little presentation of the « sensate » :
Wolfgang Bogdanov , a burglar born in East Berlin, lives in Berlin, a complex family history.
Kala Dandekar , a druggist from Mumbai, engaged to a man she doesn’t love.
Riley Blue , a DJ from London with a troubled past, a native of Reykjavik, Iceland.
Will Gorky , a policeman haunted by an unsolved murder during his childhood from Chicago.
Capheus (nicknamed » Van Damn » ) , a minibus driver in Nairobi, Kenya, which is desperate to earn money to cure his mother.
Sun Bak , daughter of a powerful businessman she works in Seoul, South Korea, and practices kickboxing .
Nomi Marks ( born Michael Marks ), a trans woman , blogger and hacker from San Francisco.
Lito Rodriguez , a famous telenovela actor nicknamed « El caído » living in Mexico City, who conceals his homosexuality.
I recommend this great show to everyone . You’ll see how thrilling and intriguing it is ! You’ll wonder if one day it will happen to us and if science will manage to explain it.
