Artist Alex Prager explains the film: “I wrote a script about a scientist who creates robots in his lover’s likeness. Their plan is to help society, but it all goes wrong. The scientist decides to destroy the robots, but they kill him and her instead and take off. I���ve been reading a lot about what’s going on in the world of artificial intelligence—the title *Uncanny Valley* refers to the unsettling feeling elicited by humanoid objects—and it’s not such a crazy scenario.”
