Documentary film “Meaning of Robots” is making its screen debut at the world’s most prestigious competitions including the world premiere at this year’s Sundance Film Festival and now South By Southwest in March.
The festival takes place over the course of nine days in Austin, TX March 9th- 17th.This is quite an honor for a film, about another man’s film, that has yet to see the light of day. Supply&Demand Integrated director Matt Lenski’s “Meaning of Robots” is a humorous character study about the benevolent Mike Sullivan who has spent 10 years attempting to create a stop-motion robot sex film. Obsessed with constructing the miniature robot porn stars, his tiny apartment overflows with thousands of robots leaving only tiny paths for him to walk, and no place to shoot.
“Meaning of Robots” has experienced over 100,000 views on YouTube. Sundance is attended by over 45,000 people with online viewership that exceeds over 1,000,000 users. Most short films from Sundance top out at 1000 views. The SXSW Film and Interactive Festival has grown immensely attracting around 15-20,000 registrants. If the film continues to attract viewers and followers, perhaps there is a possibility that someday Sullivan’s dream will be realized and the story behind “Meaning of Robots” will evolve into a feature.
