Film programme

"Year of the Robot", dir. Yves Gellie

At the intersection of art and science, L’année du robot (Year of the robot) depicts the human being and the robot as its artificial counterpart. As a series of archival documents detailing the first contacts and dialogue between a robot gifted with an artificially created autonomy and human beings, it studies cognitive dissonance, a minute, mysterious relational space sitting between the two actors. It involves elderly people sometimes afflicted with Alzheimer's or dementia, or young adults with autism or neurological problems. Once past the surprise phase and aware of the artificial nature of the robot's functioning, the residents try, despite everything, to forge bonds with it.


The film will be available online at Ninateka for 48 hours, between October 22, 9.00 pm and October 24, 8.59 pm.
The film will be available online for the viewers in Poland exclusively.
