Synopsis

Winning a place on a top-secret project, computer coder Caleb is helicoptered to the secluded home of Internet company owner Nathan. Revealing that he has built a female robot called Ava, Caleb has been enlisted to test her capacity for thought and feeling. Under the gaze of CCTV, Caleb interviews Ava and finds himself not only impressed by her intelligence but also increasingly attracted to her. However, as Nathan's and Ava’s behaviour becomes increasingly erratic, Caleb is forced to question the ethics of the experiment. Winding up to a grippingly claustrophobic ending, the film slickly explores the morality and threat in creating artificial intelligence while sparking broader discussions on how gender and sexuality inform human identity.

What our educators say

"Some of them saw a clip from Wakolda (The German Doctor) on TV recently and really wanted to watch it. So I thought I’d take a chance, not expecting them to watch the whole film but the majority were absolutely gripped. "
