Description

Academy-Award® winner Tilda Swinton plays four roles in this award-winning sci-fi about Rosetta Stone and her three Self-Replicating Automatons, (S.R.A.’s), which she cloned from her own DNA. Though they look human, the S.R.A. cyborgs were bred as intelligent machines and are immortal. In order to survive, they need sustenance of male Y chromosome, found only in sperm. Their task is to harvest sperm in the old fashioned way, which leads to a quest for love.

Teknolust was the first feature film shot on 24p Hi-Def with HD graphic conversion. The film is part of the permanent collection at the Museum of Modern Art. It won the Alfred P. Sloan award for writing and directing and was an Official Selection of Sundance Film Festival, Toronto International Film Festival and Berlin Film Festival. Teknolust has been named one of the top 19 science fiction films that could change your life (Gizmodo, November 2012).
