Wired describes the new documentary, The Mechanical Bride, as a “moving, weirdly human exploration of artificial companionship.” Directed by Allison de Fren, explores the range of mechanical brides, from robots to Real Dolls (NSFW), and the “technosexuals who love them.” I can’t wait to see it.
The Mechanical Bride will be screened at the Fantasia International Film Festival in Montreal (July 19-August 7).
