Android Prophesy

For almost a century, Hollywood has been warning us of a future where human beings become enslaved by the machines they created. But has the time come to take the seemingly outlandish imagination of science fiction seriously? Drawing disturbing conclusions about our impending mechanical domination, THE ANDROID PROPHESY, narrated by actor Tom Baker (Doctor Who), investigates the parallels between science fiction and science reality. Over the years technology has matured on screen and innovations in artificial intelligence and bio technology are making it harder to distinguish man from man-made. The debate is set, who has the upper hand: the great minds of Hollywood, or the world's leading scientists? Featuring an array of clips from the distant world of 'Lost in Space' to the domestic horror of 'The Stepford Wives, THE ANDROID PROPHESY investigates the parallels between movie director fantasy and science reality by bringing together legendary filmmakers like Steven Spielberg and Ridley Scott as well as pioneers in cyborg research.
