Does Superdeterminism save Quantum Mechanics?

This is a video I have promised you almost two years ago: How does superdeterminism make sense of quantum mechanics?

It's taken me a long time to finish this because I have tried to understand why people dislike the idea that everything is predetermined so much.

I hope that in this video I have addressed the biggest misconceptions.

I genuinely think that discarding superdeterminism unthinkingly is the major reason that research in the foundations of physics is stuck.
