Synopsis from the “Robot Stories” Web site:
Winner of over 23 awards, “Robot Stories” is science fiction from the heart, four stories starring Tamlyn Tomita (“Joy Luck Club,” “Babylon 5”) and Sab Shimono (“The Big Hit,” “Suture”) in which utterly human characters struggle to connect in a world of robot babies and android office workers.
The stories include: “My Robot Baby,” in which a couple must care for a robot baby before adopting a human child; “The Robot Fixer,” in which a mother tries to connect with her dying son by completing his toy robot collection; “Machine Love,” in which an office worker android learns that he, too, needs love; and “Clay,” in which an old sculptor must choose between natural death and digital immortality. John Petrakis of the Chicago Tribune calls the film “one of the most moving pieces I’ve seen all year” while Entertainment Insiders calls it “the kind of science fiction sophisticated audiences crave and deserve.”
There is a chance that Greg and/or some of the actors of “Robot Stories” will be there for Q/A!
