Robots Attend Sundance

Robots are already becoming caretakers and there is no more evidence of this than in "Robot and Frank", a recipient of the Alfred P. Sloan Feature Film Prize at last month's Sundance Film Festival. This award is given to films that "explore science and technology themes or that depict scientists, engineers and mathematicians in engaging and innovative ways." The film, directed by Jake Schreier and starring Frank Langella, concerns a man and the robot his children give him as a health care aide.

We also found another film, "The Meaning of Robots", a stop-motion robot sex film that took director Mike Sullivan 10 years to complete and became one of Sundance's Official Selections.
