science fiction drama “Sayōnara” is considered to be the first film
with an android as an actor. “Geminoid F” portrays a faithful robot who
stays at the side of young, sick woman after a nuclear contamination.
The Geminoid F robot was developed by Japanese robotics researcher
Professor Dr. Hiroshi Ishiguro, who became known worldwide after having
constructed a robot doppelgänger of himself. “Science Cinema Special”
will screen “Sayōnara” on Wednesday, 23 October, which will then be
accompanied by a discussion with Dr. Hiroshi Ishiguro. The film will be
shown at 7pm the Kamera Filmkunsttheater in Bielefeld as part of the
pre-program of the CITEC Conference 2019.
