Although the short film Sunspring is more s.f. than dystopian, it belongs here because of its author, Benjamin. I suspect that the last thing a truly terrifying artificial intelligence would do is let us know that it exists. It would probably spend more time learning to hack our brains to distort reality. The two humans who created Benjamin, which named itself and ensured a victory at the annual film festival Sci-Fi London by voting for itself 36,000 times per hour, fed Benjamin a list of scripts from a variety of s.f. films and television shows. The resulting short film and what it teaches us about the scènes à faire for the genre should not be ignored.
