Kibwe Tavares’ “Robot and Scarecrow” Short Film

Layering CGI characters atop live-action music festival sequences, London-based filmmaker Kibwe Tavares has crafted a sweet, sad and unlikely love story within the short film “Robot and Scarecrow.” The story sees a robot performer and scarecrow attendee (played by Holliday Grainger and Jack O’Connell respectively) meeting and exploring their feelings for one another. Between beers, fireworks, and dancing, it’s a somewhat traditional story, yet eccentric and surreal at the same time. Watch it on Nowness.
