AGING, AI, & MAKING CONNECTIONS IN A TECHNOLOGICAL WORLD

SCREENING + CONVERSATION

ROBOT AND FRANK
An irascible old man (Frank Langella) is starting to forget things, but there’s one thing he remembers very well: the robot his son sent over as a caretaker is not welcome in his house. This award-winning 2012 science-fiction buddy comedy from director Jake Schreier (“Paper Towns,” the Netfliz series “Beef”) is a remarkable meditation on the power of memory, the complexities of aging and the technological uncertainties of the future.

Director: Jake Scoreier (2012) 89 min.
