Umeå European Film Festival cooperates also this year with Doc Lounge Umeå. As always, there will be a nice evening at Electra, with good food and drinks. Also, in these circumstances, seatings may be scarce, so please book a table in advance. There is no entrance fee, the main film starts at 20.00, and the evening’s guest is Virginia Dignum, lead researcher on a project about artificial intelligence, Umeå University. In Hi, AI we meet the trucker Chuck and his new robotic partner Harmony on a road trip through the USA. In Tokyo the robot Pepper is moving in with grandma Sakurai to keep her company, but it is soon clear that the cute, but slow and egocentric Pepper is not that interested in Sakruai’s topics of conversation. Isa Wliinger’s Hi, AI contains subtle humor and beautiful cinematography that gives a hint of how family units will look like if, or when, robots become a part of them.
