Notes: I made two vids for the [community profile] wiscon_vidparty this year. This one uses Automata, one of the apocalypse films [personal profile] thingswithwings and I watched last year for Dance Apocalyptic. I was sad that we couldn't get more of the film into that vid since the film is great. It's about robots and the future, and about robots performing humanity, and a little bit about disability. It's a great film and I don't want to spoil it, but I do really recommend it. Also it stars Antonio Banderas as an insurance adjuster, slumped over and tired because of the apocalypse. (There's a lot more of him in the movie than this vid would suggest.)

Streaming version:




Lyrics:
I'm building a body
From balsam and ash
I'm building a body
With no god attached
I'm building a body
From blueprints in braille
I'm building a body
Where our design has failed

There's a book full of plans
At the feet of poor Atlas
Titled "For Man"
But the architects only drew blanks
Now there's nowhere to go
But go back, go back, go back, go back

That is amazing.

I'm truly struck wordless, which seems appropriate.

/runs to find movie.

The movie was more beautiful than its script

...the robots' see-through middles disrupted their humanoid form in a wonderfully creepy way. The dusty/foggy/hazy aesthetic shows that you don't need bajillions to make a real SF movie.

Certainly the highest and best use of Dylan McDermot.

I think you captured the very best parts of the movie in this vid. But having just forced myself to watch Interstellar (why? oh why?) Automata seems nimble and new.
