Tribeca Film Festival 2013: 15 world premieres to watch
Stanley Tucci, Paul Rudd, Paul Giamatti, Zoe Kazan and more
'Robots in Residence'
Official synopsis: "Robots in Residence" challenges Alfred Hitchcock’s claim that “in feature films the director is God; in documentary films God is the director.” Here there is no god, as pre-programmed robots collaborate with festival audiences to direct and shoot a documentary in its entirety. Robot artist Alexander Reben and filmmaker Brent Hoff forge a provocative new form of documentary storytelling by using robots as a lens through which we take a new look at humanity.
