The Film

W.I.S.O.R., a high-tech, experimental documentary, is equal parts real life and science fiction. A group of scientists create a robot to do critical repair work under the streets of New York City. W.I.S.O.R. gives the robot a voice that grinds out opinionated commentary on its impossible mission and expounds on the cacophony of invention.
