Hi, A.I. - Liebesgeschichten aus der Zukunft
Director: Isabella Willinger
en, ja, de, it
Chuck is picking up his new robot partner Harmony fresh from the factory and both are planning a trip through California. On the other side of the world, in Tokyo, the cute robot Pepper is moving in with Grandma Sakurai, arranged by her son, to keep her company. While Chuck and Sakurai are searching for love or killing time, pressing questions arise: How will we live together with AI? What will we win, what will we lose?
Insightful and laconic melding of sci-fi and documentary explores the ethically complex universe of artificial intelligence. Moving between a lonely American scientist and an estranged Japanese family, this often funny futuristic drama portrays people seeking human connection with the robots that have entered their lives.
Curator's point of view: Future is made today but are we ready for it? How diverse and how lasting can be relationships between people and their mechanical friends and assistants with artificial intelligence?
