The next day, we drag the bots across town to Monkeytown to present
"LEMUR performs Man with a Movie Camera", a visionary silent
documentary by Russian director Dziga Vertov. The film presents a
gestalt portrait of life in Odessa in 1929: day breaks, the citizens
file into factories, machines machinate, and the wheel of life spins,
with all stops detailed and deconstructed by the omnipresent
cameraman. Six composers – Zemi17, Leif Krinkle, Luke DuBois, Zach
Layton, DJ Olive and Jim Coleman – have created original scores for
LEMUR robots to accompany the film.

Monkeytown
