Robots of Brixton

Robots of Brixton, directed by Kibwe Tavares is an animated short film available to watch free right now at MUBI. It is a disturbing little thing.

io9 describes it this way:
a fascinating and gorgeously-designed interpretation of what might happen to robots created to be humanity's slave force. Tavares imagines robots consigned to the same neighborhoods as immigrant workers, and dealing with the kinds of police neglect and aggression that sparked what came to be called Bloody Saturday in 1981. The political message is stark, but you won't be able to take your eyes off Tavares' brilliant robot concepts and his surreal vision of a robot slum.
