O.V. in French subtitled in English and Spanish
Hooked to a battery system that keeps her artificial heart beating and awaiting a possible transplant, Liz lives against the clock with her cat and X14, an android with a crest shaped Iroquois crest who is protective and possessive of her companion. Delphine Kreuter signs this domestic cyborg manifesto, a sample of low cost and posthumanist science fiction about contemporary ways of inhabiting the city and our dependence on technology. A hyperdynamic technopunk comedy set in the Parisian banlieue around the respective emancipation processes of a technified woman and a humanized robot. X14's wicked charisma rivals the tremendous magnetism exuded by the lead actress, mezzo-soprano Lucie Cure.
