Dog lives in Manhattan and he’s tired of being alone, so one day he decides to build himself a companion, Robot. Their friendship blossoms, and they become inseparable, together exploring the sights and sounds of 1980s New York. But one summer night, Dog, with great sadness, is forced to abandon Robot at the beach. Will they ever meet again?

Based on the popular graphic novel by Sara Varon, and the first animation from Spanish director Pablo Berger, Robot Dreams is a dialogue-free love story about friendship – its importance, meaning and fragility.

Wise and wistful, charming and often sharply humorous, with evocative sound design and a lovely soundtrack (including joyous use of Earth, Wind & Fire’s dance-floor filler September), it’s full of nods to silent cinema classics.

Nominated for Best Animated Feature at the 2023 Academy Awards.
