Cyborgy

Poland | 2018 | animated | 8 min. National competition

Do robots dream about electric love? In the perfectly designed world of machines, everyone follows the rules determined by the central unit. Nevertheless, two appliances that start to communicate with each other, break out from the rhythm. Their relationship will have tragic results for the entire system. This animated science-fiction film made in computer aesthetics may be both an allegory of totalitarian systems and a reference to the modern world of standardisation, automation and robotization.
