THE VERIZON DOCUMENTARIES
People often ask - What does the future hold? How will we live in the future? How will we work in the future? Verizon believes that for the first time we are truly and magnificently in the future. It’s here, and it’s powered by 5G. Now we can build a more sustainable world. We can finally fight cancer like never before. We can change the way we play, learn, live, work. Because Verizon 5G isn’t about what technology can do. But about giving humans the ability to do more good and more new in the world. They call that humanability. We’ve been traveling across the country to follow real stories of real people and see how people’s lives are being transformed by technology.

With Michael Raso, Alexander Augustinos, Declan Byrnes-Enoch, Katie Pilot, Katie West and Kyle Webster.
Directed by Christian Weber.


DOCUMENTARY 01

CATCHING CANCER
While doctors are doing the best they can to fight cancer, they are often limited by 2D images to understand a patient’s 3D anatomy. Dr. Christopher Morley and Dr. Osamah Choudhry created Medivis, a technology that can take 2-dimensional patient imaging, whether an MRI or CAT scan, and convert into 3-dimensional holographic renderings. This will fundamentally change how doctors fight cancer. This docu-film tells that story.

THE DIAGNOSABLE PRINT AD
To showcase this technology, we took over The New York Times and created a diagnosable print ad using Augmented Reality. We found a real patient with a brain tumor and you can point your phone at his picture and see his brain in 3D and find the tumor.

CLOSING THE DIVIDE

Millions of students in America don't have the access to technology. VZ is working with underserved schools in the country to bridge the digital divide. We traveled to Louisville to follow the story of some students to see what happens when technology is easily accessible. Does it change anything?
