Os Humores Artificiais
by Gabriel Abrantes, 2016
Wittgenstein said that the most profound problems could only be discussed in the form of jokes.
Using a mix of Hollywood aesthetics with documentary strategies, the film follows a young indigenous girl from the Xingu National Park to São Paulo, where she falls in love with a robot that also happens to be a stand-up comedian. This strange story mixes the anthropology of humor, indigenous communities, and artificial intelligence.
