The Meaning Of Life And Love Are Questioned In The Animated Short “ABE”

Can Love Be Artificial?

Coming in at eight and a half minutes, ABE has to be one of the most uncomfortable and uneasy short films I have ever seen.

Director/Writer Rob McLellan creates a twisted story of a lonely robot named ABE. Originally built to love and serve families, ABE doesn’t know exactly how to cope when his family upgrades to a newer model. Love quickly turns into obsession in this terrifying tale asking the question, what does it mean to love when it’s programmed?
