HBO Original Documentary that shows how humans are becoming more and more dependent on robots nowadays. This film also features several points of view from engineers, journalists, and philosophers who talk about different situations where robots have caused the death of humans, and how they represent a threat to society.
When a robot kills a human, who takes the blame?
An eerie, eye-opening work of science nonfiction, The Truth About Killer Robots considers several automation cases, from a factory in Germany to a bomb-carrying police droid in Dallas, raising questions of accountability and morality. Exploring the provocative viewpoints of engineers, journalists and philosophers, the film goes beyond sensational deaths to examine more subtle but pervasive ways that robots affect humanity.
Narrated by Kodomoroid, a lifelike Japanese android, The Truth About Killer Robots focuses on the growing use of robotics in manufacturing, the service and life-and-death policing matters. The film visits Germany, China, Japan and the U.S. to gain insights into the ways robots are impacting jobs across cultures.
Still, the gravest threat to humanity goes beyond job displacement: As humans adjust their lives to the rhythms of machines, their faculties atrophy, and human connection becomes ever more remote.
The Truth About Killer Robots features provocative observations from: Illah Nourbakhsh, professor of ethics and computational technologies at Carnegie Mellon; Marios Savvides, director of biometrics research at Carnegie Mellon; journalist Sven Kuhling, who covered the death of a worker caused by a robot at a Volkswagen factory; entrepreneurs Julia Collins of the pizza startup Zume and Tim Hwang of the law firm Robot, Robot & Hwang, both of whom have embraced robotic partners; noted Japanese roboticist Hiroshi Ishiguro; and philosopher John Campbell.
The Truth About Killer Robots was directed by Maxim Pozdorovkin (HBO’s Pussy Riot: A Punk Prayer); produced by Joe Bender, Maxim Pozdorovkin; director of photography, Joe Bender; edited by Isabel Ponte, Maxim Pozdorovkin. For HBO: executive producer, Sara Bernstein.

Masterpiece that marked several generations of fans, Sailor Moon finally makes it to Tsume’s catalogue. Check out our unique vision of Princess Serenity’s reincarnation.
Usagi is set wearing her outfit from the end of Sailor Moon S and beginning of Sailor Moon Super S, standing on her left leg with the right arm in extension holding the Spiral Heart Moon Rod. A translucent ribbon is spiralling around her, seeming to emerge from the rod and mimicking a transformation effect. The warrior of the moon is standing on a bed of pink roses and in front of a replica of her Crisis Moon Compact.
Very colourful and contrasted, this statue is full of details, any way you look at it. Her outfit’s painting highlights different types of fabrics combining mate, satiny, and glossy effects to create relief and please the eye. The translucent ribbon adds a touch of delicacy and lightness to a very aerial overall. The setup is vertical and authorises various point of view, all the more since the ribbon and hair’s curves, and the skirt’s folds add dynamism and movement to the piece.
