Robot Dreams – Film

June 21 @ 8:00 pm - 11:00 pm


Prepare yourself for one of the loveliest films you’ll see this or any other year. Adapted by Spanish director Pablo Berger from the graphic novel by American author and illustrator Sara Varon, it’s an absolutely delightful and deeply moving tale of love and loss, and also a beautifully detailed nostalgic ode to the summer in New York in the 1980s.

Dog lives a lonely existence in Manhattan, but he’s tired of being alone. Then he sees an ad on TV for a robot companion, and his life changes completely. Until disaster strikes. After an idyllic day at the beach, salt water gets into Robot’s mechanism and shorts his circuits. It’s the classic story: Dog meets Robot, Dog loses Robot… How will the story end?

Although kids will certainly enjoy it, Robot Dreams is really a film for grown-ups who understand the subtleties of loneliness and friendship and the importance of a loving relationship. Be prepared for an emotional rollercoaster: joy and pain, laughter and tears. And, believe us, there will be tears.

This is visual storytelling at its finest, a traditional animation of gentle, unshowy genius, made entirely without dialogue. Sometimes the very best love stories go deeper than words can say.
