My Robot Brother Robotbror

Frederik Meldal Nørgaard / Denmark / 2022 / 84 min / Slovene subtitles, English Subtitles, Danish / 9+

The near future. The climate crisis has been solved, and mankind lives in harmony with nature. No one wastes their time with menial tasks like cooking, children learn meditation at school, and in the evenings, the ceiling turns into a virtual star-filled sky. Parents spend most of their time in virtual reality, and children have robots as companions.

For 12-year-old Alberte, this doesn't make everyday school life any easier. She is ashamed of her robot companion Robbi, whose outdated operating system attracts the ridicule of her classmates – he looks like a giant teddy bear, never stops telling fairy stories and wants to be friends with everyone. Improvement seems to be in sight when she receives the perfect birthday present from her parents: Konrad, a brand-new android model that looks and acts completely as if he were human! With him at her side, Alberte's popularity soars and an intimate bond develops between the two. But can the connection between Alberte and Konrad hold up to a real friendship?

“Our goal was to create a refurbished, recycled future, a clash of different periods – the 70s, 80s, 90s,… Robbi is the result of that. But even more importantly, Robbi represents Alberte’s innocence and purity. She is caught between childhood and adulthood, a difficult and insecure period in life, which is why she feels attracted to the ‘cooler’ kids.” (Frederik Meldal Norgaard)
