Everything You Need to Know About Longevity Hackers, the Anti-Aging Documentary

"We’re not just talking about slowing aging, we’re actually about turning back the clock."

Defying aging has long been the stuff of fantasy films and TV shows—think Brad Pitt’s reverse-aging Benjamin Button, Ryan Reynolds’ immortal Deadpool, or Highlander’s “Immortals.”

That’s changing.

Chris Hemsworth’s Disney+ docuseries Limitless took a real-life look into ways you can extend your healthspan and lifespan. In early 2024, Emmy-nominated filmmaker Michal Siewierski is set to continue the trend with Longevity Hackers.

According to its website, the film will follow Siewierski “on a journey to discover the latest research and science breakthroughs in the field of longevity and healthy life extension.”

Consider our interest piqued. After all, content that helps people live a healthier longer life is part of our mission.

We talked to Siewierski to find out more.

What is ‘Longevity Hackers’ About?

This documentary will draw on decades of research and interviews with top scientists, researchers, start-up CEO’s, and critics of longevity research to explore questions like if humans might soon live to 130—or even stop aging altogether.

According to Siewierski, the film will dive into topics including genetics’ role in lifespan, ways to counteract aging, stem cell treatments, tissue regeneration, and how telomeres are involved with cancer and neurodegenerative diseases.

It looks like the film will also explore fringe topics too, like cryonics—aka preserving a dead body that can one day be revived using future medical technology.
