Rise short film has sentient robots fighting for their rights

rise short film

Man’s fascination and fears with robots have existed for decades. The thought that a robot can become sentient and turn on their masters have been the subject of many films and shorts including The Terminator, The Matrix, and Animatrix’s “The Second Renaissance.”

Rise, a live-action short film about the tension between humans and sentient robots, has been out for two months now, and it features high-production value, impressive special effects, and emotional scenes of robots being treated like scraps. Director David Karlak has done a wonderful job of creating a futuristic world where people fear sentient robots and have resorted to eliminating them, which ignites a war.

The short stars Anton Yelchin (Star Trek) and Rufus Sewell (Dark City, Amazon’s The Man in the High Castle).
