Producer Stella Flicker talks with Jesus Figueroa,  of Thisfunktional.com, about her short film “I Am.”

I AM questions the public discourse on robot ethics and raises questions for which there are no answers (yet). This black female led drama premiered at Cinequest Film Festival and has just been nominated for a Student Academy Award and has just won the HBOmax Best Short Film Award at the St. Martha‘s Vineyard African American Film Festival.
 
One day, the withdrawn Noé finds a motionless android in the forest, takes it with her and reactivates it. It's the beginning of a strange relationship. Far too late, Noé realizes that the android is about to copy her personality.
 
I AM was written by Florens Huhn, directed by Jerry Hoffmann, photographed by Lena Katharina Krause and produced by Stella Flicker. The German collective of four filmmakers have come together for a second time (after their first internationally acclaimed short “MALL”) to create this unique science fiction short about the special relationship between a woman and an android. Florens Huhn has a modern style of writing, that often circles around topics of power structures and identity. Lena Katharina Krause’s exceptional camera work is evocative and bold.
