a documentary by Yasmin Angel

Humanmakers is a Documentary about the human fascination with creating a machine in our own image and the humanization of the machine. The film approaches the relationship between the scientist and machine as a creator and creation.  Humanmakers is a cinematographic journey into a fantastic and simultaneously real dream-world.  With animated elements and filmic staging it will tell fictional stories parallel to the protagonists’ real lives. Without losing sight of the documentary gesture, the film hereby becomes a hybrid of observations of reality and a fantastic narrative. Humanmakers addresses the role of humanoids now and in the future: When the humanoids enter our society, is it possible that they will become nearly as human as we are?
