In all our sci-fi films, a robot among human beings develops human-like emotions on earth, but what happens if anyone is stranded alone with a robot on the moon? Does it work the other way round?
Creaking Projectors is screening an English movie 'Moon', on 26th September, at Taj Deccan.
Sam Rockwell stars as the employee Sam Bell, and Kevin Spacey voices his robot companion, GERTY. Moon is the feature debut of director Duncan Jones.
'Moon' is a 2009 British science fiction film about a man who experiences a personal crisis as he nears the end of a 3-year solitary stint mining Helium-3 on the far side of the Earth's moon. Sam Bell is an employee contracted by Lunar Industries to extract Helium-3 from lunar regolith, for much-needed clean energy back on Earth, leaving behind his wife Tess, who was pregnant with their daughter, Eve, when he left Earth. He is stationed for 3 years at the largely-automated "Sarang" lunar base ("sarang" means 'love' in Korean), with only a robotic assistant named GERTY for company.
'Moon' premiered at the 2009 Sundance Film Festival, and was released in selected theatres in New York and Los Angeles on 12th June 2009. This film was the British Independent Film Award (BIFA) winner of the 2009 award for the Best British Independent Film. Director Duncan Jones also won the BIFA Douglas Hickox Award. The film has been nominated for 2 BAFTAs at the 2010 awards. It bagged the title for "Outstanding Debut By A British Writer, Director Or Producer".
