This discussion from SXSW 2021 features Brian Eno in discussion with Stewart Brand, the subject of a new documentary called We Are As Gods.

The film profiles Stewart Brand, who is a pioneer of counterculture, cyberspace, futurism, and modern environmentalism. He’s best known for his work as editor of The Whole Earth Catalog; founding seminal WELL online community; and being one of the founders of The Long Now Foundation.

Eno & Brand talk with We Are As Gods directors David Alvarado & Jason Sussberg about the film, collaborating on the musical score, and limiting creative possibilities in the digital age.
