What truly binds them, however, is a subtle exploration of the tension between the human and the synthetic, and the sometimes fuzzy distinction between the two. The film also has a distinguishable arc, beginning with an exceedingly nontraditional ‘birth’ and closing with a triumphant death...He's an uncannily assured visual storyteller...The result is a quietly impassioned, genuinely stirring indie rarity.” - Mark Holcomb, The Village VoiceWinner of more than 30 film festival awards, Robot Stories is an acclaimed independent movie by talented Asian American writer Greg Pak. In four intertwined stories, people struggle to connect in a technological world. In “My Robot Baby,” a couple cares for a robot before adopting a human child.

"Greg Pak's fantasy anthology piece, which details the ways robots have complicated the lives of humans, has a dexterous sense of wonder. . . . Mr. Pak's feel for melodrama adds a piercing and thoughtful end note similar to the emotional gravity found in Stephen King novellas like "The Body" and "Rita Hayworth and Shawshank Redemption," both in Mr. King's collection "Different Seasons." But it's Mr. Pak's respect for the actors that he's selected that seems to work hand-in-exoskeleton with the thematic mission of the protagonists in each chapter of "Stories." . . . The most startling aspect of "Robot Stories" is not the mix the filmmaker built from spare parts left on the curb, but Mr. Pak's evolving dramatic acumen. He's a talent with a future."-"The New York Times" Winner of dozens of film festival awards, "Robot Stories" is an acclaimed independent movie written by rising Asian American director Greg Pak. In four intertwined stories, people struggle to connect in a technological world. In "My Robot Baby," a couple cares for a robot before adopting a human child. In "The Robot Fixer," a mother reaches out to her dying son by completing his toy robot collection. In "Machine Love," an office worker android learns that he too needs love. In "Clay," an old sculptor chooses between natural death and digital immortality. Praised as "the kind of science fiction sophisticated audiences crave and deserve," the screenplay is a rich and rewarding reading experience and follows in the literary tradition of Isaac Asimov and Ray Bradbury. This collection includes Pak's scripts from his popular comic shorts "Asian Pride Porn," "All Amateur Ecstasy," "Mouse" and "Cat Fight Tonight." It features original commentary by the author and a foreword by Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright David Henry Hwang. Greg Pak directed his first feature film, "Robot Stories," which has played nationwide and won over 30 festival awards. One of "Filmmaker magazine"'s 25 Filmmakers to Watch, Pak studied political science at Yale, history at Oxford University as a Rhodes Scholar and film at New York University's graduate program.
