"Almost-human, yet otherworldly: robots, cyborgs, and vessels of artificial intelligence are the vanguard of technological development—liminal beings straddling the boundaries between the scientific and the imaginary, the mechanical and the biological. Inspiring equal parts wonderment and dread, they have always occupied a special place in moving images, providing creative fodder for some of the most inventive films ever made. This program contemplates the ever-encroaching future moment when artificial superintelligence will overtake human intelligence—known as the coming Singularity—with films spanning ninety years of moving image history."-Metrograph
