Web Exclusive: The most human robots in the world

YK Tsuchiya Shokai Doll Factory

Samsara is a new film that takes viewers around the world – from Burmese temples, sulfur mines, and hot-air balloon rides – all without a word of narration. One of the stops along the way was in Japan, where the directors encountered robot clones. What does that mean? KALW's Ben Trefny asked director Ron Fricke and producer Mark Magidson to explain. 

Click the audio player above to hear the answer. Audio available after 5pm.

Riding a hot air balloon over exquisite Burmese temples; descending into poisonous sulfur mines in Java; meeting robot clones in Japan; exploring factory farms in China. These are some of the images of Samsara: a new feature film from Emeryville director Ron Fricke and producer Mark Magidson now showing in Berkeley and San Francisco.
