The Artificial Humors

The Artificial Humors is a film about humor, anthropology, and artificial intelligence. It focuses on how humor is central to human relationships and is used as a form of social control and one of the most complex forms of communication. Blending a certain Hollywood aesthetic with documentary approaches, the film tells a story of an indigenous girl who falls in love with a robot that is a rising stand up comedian in Brazil.
