For the second year, Havas New York has partnered with the Brooklyn Film Festival to call on filmmakers to showcase their art. This year the campaign eloquently makes the case that artificial intelligence can’t replace filmmakers.  

Yes, AI can write, create images, edit and animate--raising concerns among human creators. But this “Stories About Life by Those Who Have Lived It” campaign shows that the human experience cannot be replicated artificially. And that’s at the heart of two films for the Brooklyn fest, including this one titled “Gil’s Grills,” in which a woman grapples with a mouthful that she can’t control--so she has to grin and bear it.

Nicolas Gordon directed via production house Kin Films, demonstrating that humanity is what sets filmmakers apart from AI.
