silverdocs-logoToday was the first screening day of the Silverdocs AFI/Discovery Channel Documentary Festival in its sixth year at Washington DC. I was lucky to be there to see the Documentary “Mechanical Love” by Phie Ambo, where Robotics professor Hiroshi Ishiguro may believe he’s helping humanity by developing artificial life-forms so advanced you could soon find yourself closer to them than your neighbor or family dog.
There are more than 100 documentaries showing this year at the AFI Silver Theatre and Cultural Center, Round House Theatre, and Discovery HD Theater. So go and get yourself a program!

Hoy comenzó el Silverdocs AFI/Discovery Channel Documentary Festival en su sexto año en Washington DC. Y yo tuve la suerte de estar allí para poder ver el documental “Mechanical Love” de Phie Ambo, donde el Profesor de robótica Hiroshi Ishiguro cree poder estar ayudando a la humanidad desarrollando formas de vida artificial tan avanzadas que uno podría rápidamente sentirse mas cercano a ellas que a al propio vecino o perro de familia.
Se estarán proyectando más de 100 documentales este año en el AFI Silver Theatre and Cultural Center, Round House Theatre, y el Discovery HD Theater. Acérquense y busquen un programa!
