Watch AUTOMATONS online
Part of Reel 13’s ongoing mission is to present independent films you won’t find elsewhere. We already launched this initiative with the online debut of Nina Paley’s tremendous achievement, Sita Sings the Blues. Now, the same week that the glossy special effects extravaganza Terminator: Salvation bombards the box office, we bring you a robot flick of another kind…
AUTOMATONS is a low-budget, lovingly-produced film about what happens when communication breaks down between societies. Set in a post-apocalyptic world, the film follows a lone girl and her squad of robots as they struggle to survive the attacks of a relentless enemy.
Featuring veteran genre actor Angus Scrimm, a brilliant sound design, and a “broadcast-from-outer-space” 1950s visual aesthetic, AUTOMATONS is perfect for a movie night or lazy Sunday afternoon. Watch AUTOMATONS here.
