1960s Retrofuture Short Film Inspired By The Oldest Story About Robots

Karel Čapek's seminal 1919 play R.U.R. coined the term "robot" and was set 50 years in the future, making it 1969. Chase Masterson of Star Trek: Deep Space Nine stars in R.U.R.: Genesis, set in a flirty 1960s retrofuture where artificials conspire against humans.

Writer and director James Kerwin has plans for a feature-length R.U.R. movie with this swinging setting. He's hoping the fun short can garner enough interest to fund a longer movie.
