What the Hell?! Strange Sundance Short Trailer 'Meaning of Robots'

January 13, 2012

Meaning of Robots

When it comes to our coverage of the Sundance Film Festival, we're pretty much primarily concerned with feature films and documentaries. While the festival also has a spectacular selection of short films, both fictional and documentary, they usually stay off our radar. However, in this case, we're going to make an exception. A friend of mine helped me stumble upon the trailer for this wholly peculiar, but completely fascinating documentary short called Meaning of Robots. At first it seems like a charming look at a man's robot collection, but then it takes a turn that can only be described as "What the f**k?!" Watch it below!

Here's the trailer for Matt Lenski's Meaning of Robots which has some salty NSFW language:

The benevolent Mike Sullivan, age 65, has been shooting an epic stop-motion robot sex film in his apartment for the last 10 years. Obsessed with constructing the miniature robot porn stars, his apartment now overflows with thousands of them. Honestly, I don't know what to make of this documentary short, but I'm absolutely awestruck with laughter and genuine interest. That's one hell of an extensive collection of erotic robots for what I hope is an awesome robot porn, and I just want to know more about this guy. Sullivan seems like this larger-than-life character that you might find in a comedy, but here he is in real-life. I'm hoping to go out of my way to check out this documentary short, so stay tuned for my hopeful review.
