Narrative


Robosexual
(short, dir. Alden Peters, DP)

THE ROBOSEXUAL is a short sci-fi film about CONOR, an awkward 20-something living in a not-too-distant future where attraction to androids is considered a sickness and punished as a crime. Conor watches the vice police arrest his neighbor on the grounds of robosexual deviancy. Fearing he’ll be next, he plans an escape with the male android he loves — a medical bot caring for his ailing mother. THE ROBOSEXUAL is based on the queer experience of the 1950s and 60s and explores the themes of hope, chosen family, and liberation.


Friend of Sophia
