Robots of Brixton from Kibwe Tavares on Vimeo.

History repeats itself, first as tragedy, second as farce. 
By Karl Marx

This animation movie is not well produced in modeling detail and render quality, you can easily spot those not-real-enough scenes, but that's not the point, this video just like a fragment of memories, a segment of the history, yes, the history repeats, what a global deja vu, where are we, who we are, what are we doing, what have we done?

 

Brixton has degenerated into a disregarded area inhabited by London's new robot workforce - robots built and designed to carry out all of the tasks which humans are no longer inclined to do. The mechanical population of Brixton has rocketed, resulting in unplanned, cheap and quick additions to the skyline.


The film follows the trials and tribulations of young robots surviving at the sharp end of inner city life, living the predictable existence of a populous hemmed in by poverty, disillusionment and mass unemployment. When the Police invade the one space which the robots can call their own, the fierce and strained relationship between the two sides explodes into an outbreak of violence echoing that of 1981.
