Teknolust

Overview

In this offbeat sci-fi-drama, Rosetta Stone (Tilda Swinton) is a scientist specializing in biogenetics who has made a major breakthrough in artificial biological engineering. Rosetta has created a type of Self-Replicating Automaton, which looks like a human being, but is in fact part machine and part living organism. In order to survive and reproduce, Rosetta discovers her SRAs need certain human genetic compounds that are found only in male semen. Hoping to kill two birds with one stone, Rosetta programs one of ...

DVD This futuristic comedy from director Lynn Hershman Leeson puts a funny spin on recent advancements in science and technology, namely cloning. When Rosetta Stone (Tilda ... Swinton), a scientist conducting biology research, has a major breakthrough and writes a paper about it, her colleagues suspect that she has already tried out her theories in real-life experiments. Unbeknownst to them, Rosetta has created a formula in her computer that combines DNA and software to make the perfect being: part-robot, part-human. She has produced three female test subjects: Ruby, Olive, and Marine (all played by Swinton) who live in the refurbished and fully computer-and-video-equipped basement of her apartment. Her clones keep her company, entertain her, and listen to her problems. Their only flaw is that they need a chemical found in sperm to survive, so Ruby is programmed to seduce human men and share the sperm with the other two. Trouble starts when Ruby transmits a computer virus to the men she seduces, crashing t Read more Show Less

Overview

In this offbeat sci-fi-drama, Rosetta Stone (Tilda Swinton) is a scientist specializing in biogenetics who has made a major breakthrough in artificial biological engineering. Rosetta has created a type of Self-Replicating Automaton, which looks like a human being, but is in fact part machine and part living organism. In order to survive and reproduce, Rosetta discovers her SRAs need certain human genetic compounds that are found only in male semen. Hoping to kill two birds with one stone, Rosetta programs one of her SRAs, Ruby (also played by Swinton) to seduce men Rosetta has found through a website offering paid "fantasy dates," which will provide both needed materials and ready cash. Ruby brings back used condoms, and shares the contents with her fellow SRAs Marine and Olive (both also played by Swinton). However, after their assignations with Ruby, the men find themselves with a strange illness that leaves them with skin outbreaks and the inability to perform sexually. Two health investigators (James Urbaniak and Karen Black) begin interviewing the men infected, which sends them on a trail leading back to Rosetta and her research lab. Meanwhile, the more Ruby comes in contact with humans, the more she finds herself falling under the sway of human emotions, and she finds herself falling in love with Sandy (Jeremy Davies), a shy man working at a photocopying center. Shot on digital video equipment by acclaimed cinematographer Hiro Narita, Teknolust was screened at the 2002 Sundance Film Festival.
