In the Special Collections room of the Transylvania University Library, guarded by a small amount of plexiglass and an elderly librarian, sits some of the most valuable books and manuscripts in America.

The film follows Sophie (Amanda Seyfried) as she rebui...

However, tensions rise between the ride-or-die partners and best friends when Mel starts a sexual...

More Human Than Human – Revelation Film Festival

Are robots going to replace us? Will robots eventually steal our highest paid, most prized jobs? Can an artificial intelligence be creative? These are the questions raised by directors Tommy Pallotta and Femke Wolting (directors of The Last Hijack from Revelation 2014) in their documentary More Human Than Human, as Pallotta attempts to replace himself with a ‘camerabot’, an artificially intelligen...
