A sci-fi film out of Germany has sparked controversy and severe backlash for depicting a relationship between an adult man and a 10-year-old robot designed to resemble his daughter. The outrage has prompted walkouts at several of the film’s screenings.
“Titled ‘Trouble With Being Born,’ the film is programmed as part of Berlinale 2020, the annual film festival held in Berlin, Germany,” reports the Independent. “In the film, the child-like android, played by Lena Watson, 10, is seen calling her owner ‘Daddy.'”
Though the movie features no graphic depiction of sex between the man and the girl sexbot, the implications are clear.
“The android role was originally written for a 20-year-old actor, but after removing some of the more explicit elements, director Sandra Wollner decided to cast a child,” continued the report.
People on Twitter have objected to the film as “pedophile propaganda” while certain outlets like The Hollywood Reporter (THR) have hailed it for its artistic merits, even going so far to call it a “hidden gem”. Wolner told the outlet she meant the film to be an antithesis to “Pinnochio” or Steven Spielberg’s “AI.”
“What I found interesting about it is that we have an android whose only desires are the ones you program it to have,” she said. “I found it fascinating to show the perspective of the world through this machine that does not judge and does not care, and doesn’t need the meanings that we do.”
Regarding the nude scenes featuring the 10-year-old robot, Wolner says they were created using CGI and permission from the young actress’s family.
"The Five" discuss Weinstein Case
Just watching a low budget early film noir hollywood movie based upon a true story about small town mob corruption.
The amazing history of this movie is that is was financed by an actual US Senator who gives a narrative at the beginning of the movie (for a cut of profits and publicity). Due to the popularity of the film, this Senator, in reality, beat democrat POTUS Harry Truman in New Hampshire primary and caused him to drop out of the race while running for his second term. The juxtapositions of that story to our pertinent stories of today are poignant, from a hit on the whistleblower, to the mob having the highest comm tech of the era.
Alert Patriots! One would have have to have experienced earlier eras to realize, in TIME, all floating elements equalize. 70 years from now, the essence of happenings could easily be the same with only fluffy nuances that differ, if not for our upcoming victory.
