Project Space 2: Marie Jager
"Place: an island—Time: the future—This is the central office—organizing living matter...” Such begins R.U.R., a science-fiction film without special effects and shot with non-professional actors. Based on Karel Capec’s 1921 play
Rossum Universal Robot that introduced the first use of the word “robot,” R.U.R. presents a meditation on how to imagine a new beginning, how to represent the future, and how to create fiction without narrative.
