Honda Robots Take Over Sundance
Honda will debut its new documentary film 'Living With Robots' at the 2010 Sundance Film Festival on 22 January in the U.S.A.
Directed by award-winning filmmaker Joe Berlinger (Brother's Keeper, Paradise Lost, Metallica: Some Kind of Monster), the documentary ponders life with robots and features commentary from leading science-fiction screenwriters, academics, philosophers, engineers and visionaries.
The premiere of 'Living With Robots' marks the sixth film release in Honda's Dream the Impossible documentary series, which celebrates individuals helping create a better future by making the impossible real.
Helping to bring the robot theme to life, Honda will offer Sundance guests the opportunity to attend live demonstrations by ASIMO.
ASIMO, short for Advanced Step in Innovative MObility, is the world's first humanoid robot developed by Honda and a milestone in robotics engineering.
Festival-goers will get up-close and personal with some of the latest Honda technology including the new CR-Z sport hybrid and the zero-emissions hydrogen-powered FCX Clarity fuel cell vehicle, the first hydrogen car certified for regular commercial use by the US Environmental Protection Agency.
As presenting sponsor and official vehicle provider for the Festival, Honda will supply nearly 50 low-emissions vehicles to transport film-makers, talent and other special guests to Festival events.
The 2010 Sundance Film Festival will be held from 21-31 January in Utah.
