More human than human
Netherlands, 2018
Duration: 79 min
Language: English
Subtitles: Russian

This work is not the first take on the future coexistence of man and AI, but it is definitely one of the best of its kind. The story, whose characters are the usual suspects (humans are represented by Nick Bostrom and Garry Kasparov, and the AI is represented by the Boston Dynamics’ robot dog and Siri) is full of irony: a group of robotics engineers is trying to build a robot to see if it can replace first the cameraman and then the entire crew. “Do you know who works the least and gets paid the most? Actors! That’s who should fear robots!”, argues the inventor. However, unlike most films about the future, this one is not trying to scare us: artificial empathy is not fictional. A war with robots is not coming, and the robotic director leaves a lot to be desired.
