R.U.R.: Rossum's Universal Robots
R.U.R.: ROSSUM'S UNIVERSAL ROBOTS by Karel Capek
Directed by Brad Gunter
In 1921, Karel Capek introduced the word "robot" to a world still recovering from the ravages of war and built around it the concept that humankind would bring about its own destruction. Still relevant today, "R.U.R.: Rossum's Universal Robots" examines what it is to be human and robot, and what it means to love.
