Spanish director Pablo Berger’s rich and emotionally engaging animation about friendship, set in a bustling 1980s New York City.

Dog is lonely so decides to buy himself a new companion in the shape of Robot, delivered in parts for home assembly but soon lovingly transformed into a fully functioning friend.

Adapted from Sara Varon’s graphic novel, Berger’s (Blancanieves, Abracadabra) gorgeous, colourful and sharply humorous film, with its nods to silent cinema, offers insightful reflections on the pleasures of camaraderie.

Please note: this festival screening will start promptly at the advertised time and will not include ads or trailers.

Presented as part of the 67th BFI London Film Festival in partnership with American Express.
