About the Event

Science Fiction Films are usually scientific, visionary, imaginative, and usually presented through unique

settings, advanced technology (i.e., robots and spaceships), scientific developments, or by the use of fantastic

special effects. Sci-Fi films are complete with heroes, shadowy villains, and unknown or inexplicable forces.

Quite a few examples of science-fiction cinema owe their origins to writers Jules Verne and H.G. Wells.

Short Circuit (1986)

Robots have always played a primary role in science-fiction tales. They have functioned as both servant-helpers or oppressors of humanity, portraying the good and evil sides.

In Short Circuit, Number 5, one of a group of experimental military robots, undergoes a sudden transformation after being struck by lightning. He develops self-awareness.
