ROBOT WORLD is a compilation. The source material for this one-hour film comes from robot laboratories at universities, from private footage at industrial fairs, military archives and corporate videos from the robot industry. Motion pictures of old 16 mm films from the 1930’s were added. This non-verbal documentary was recycled from far in excess of one hundred hours of raw material. ROBOT WORLD is the second film in the “Technology & Mind & Evolution” series of Munich filmmaker Martin Hans Schmitt. The first film in this series, HIGHWAY WORLD, deals with highway worlds and in 2008/2009 was successful at international film festivals.
ROBOT WORLD is 60 minutes long and subdivided into six main parts. The main parts (vibrations, discovering rooms, animal-like, production & talk, children’s games, war and penetration) are flagged by short video paintings which signal the felt evolutionary state. Besides the main sequences, three surrealistic inserts show the manifestation of robots developing; evolving from pure machine, a sleep-walking creature, to an artificial human able to free itself from its mechanical casing and float towards perfect freedom.
