Honda is branching out with new creative venues in the arts. Honda debuted its “Living with Robots” shot-film, its sixth short-film documentary for its “Dream the Impossible” series, at the Sundance Film Festival. Directed by Joe Berlinger with producers @radical.media, “Living with Robots” investigates humankind’s keen interest in robots and how robots can challenge the impossible by saving lives while also holding the promise to become more integrated and helpful in daily life. The film highlights Honda’s ASIMO (Advanced Step in Innovative Mobility), the world’s most advanced humanoid robot, and the company’s commitment to researching and developing bipedal mobility and how the research improves technologies across the company. “Star Trek” and “Transformers” screenwriters Roberto Orci and Alex Kurtzman, academics, philosophers and several Honda associates and engineers are featured in the film.
“The Sundance Film Festival is the ideal place to explore new and diverse ideas at the intersection of art, technology and mobility,” said Barbara Ponce, manager of corporate advertising for American Honda Motor Co., Inc. “Honda’s new film takes a fresh look at mobility through stories on one of Honda’s most challenging dream projects – ASIMO, the world’s most advanced humanoid robot.”
If you couldn’t make it to Sundance, Honda will continue to showcase all of its documentary series trailers during ESPN’s “30 for 30” film series, a weekly documentary series to celebrate ESPN’s 30th anniversary and features 30 films from some of today’s finest storytellers.
