Never before have robots looked and behaved more like humans, and never before have the tensions between technological innovation and social responsibility been higher. Developers and manufacturers continue to chase their utopian visions for the future, while critics become more vocal. ROBOLOVE is a sharp and balanced documentary about the complex issues that define this development, showing us the enthusiasm and vision of those who are constructing the robots, while at the same time questioning these new machines that mimic our humanity.
