It’s 2045, and a lone robot orbits Earth in a spaceship, left there by his human companions. He longs for his home on Earth, but knows he’ll never see it again. Tragic, huh? This is the story of Robbie, a sentient Catholic robot, and the subject of the short film Robbie from director Neil Harvey.
Sad robot is sad.
wow this was pretty brilliant. i have actually seen a couple films where they use footage from nasa to tell a narrative and it’s always so awe-inspiring. like this imagery is just that inherently stunning, without there having to be any fancy editing or camera-work. i mean, they don’t need it — they’re in space on a space ship doing space stuff. that footage is just begging to be made into something.
aaaaah going to watch this when i’m not working
going to watch it. yes.
