The Caring Futures project invites you the screening of the science fiction comedy-drama "Robot and Frank". The screening starts at 12.00, but please join us for light refreshments at 11.30.
Set in a potential future, the film Robot and Frank tells the story of a developing relationship between an elderly man, Frank, and domestic robot that serves as his caretaker. This narrative raises relevant questions about care in the future, as well as overarching questions about caring relations, ethics and technology.
PhD candidate Ilghar Azarmanesh in the Caring Futures project will give a brief introduction to the film before the screening. After the film, we will open the floor for a discussion about the film, and the impressions and questions it raises.
Due to limited seating, we kindly ask you to sign up for the event, and to signal if you will be joining us for refreshments at 11.30.
