A robot rambles about frenetically in a state of constant preoccupation. He gets countless numbers of electronic messages through his antenna every second. Despite his fatigue and stress, he never slows down… The only thing that might bring his frenetic journey to an end is a traffic accident.
The short film is one in the Hothouse 3 series created within the National Film Board of Canada’s apprenticeship program for emerging filmmakers. Filmmaker Shira Avni was the mentoring director on the “Air & Home”-themed project.
The title of this film first conjures ideas of math but exploring what the title means after watching it can make for a good discussion.
