Artificial Humours

Gabriel Abrantes

(Portugal 2016, 29:00 minutes)

Artificial Humours follows a young indigenous girl from Mato Grosso (Canarana and the Yawalapiti and Kamayura villages inside Xingu Indigenous Park in Brazil) to São Paulo, where she falls in love with a robot that also happens to be a stand-up comedian. This bizarre story conflates the anthropology of humour, indigenous communities, romance and artificial intelligence, while also contrasting notions of tradition and progress and pinpointing the truism that love – like beauty – is in the eye of the beholder.
