Robots may not be taking over the world, but they are undeniably taking a toll on humanity. 

The eerie and eye-opening documentary The Truth About Killer Robots goes beyond freak industrial accidents and sensational deaths to explore the more subtle and inescapable ways robots are affecting mankind.  

Debuting Nov. 26 on HBO, the film is a work of science non-fiction and was directed by Maxim Pozdorovkin of HBO’s Pussy Riot: A Punk Prayer

This intriguing and thought-provoking documentary features a lifelike Japanese android, Kodomoroid, as the narrator, and focuses on the increasing usage of robotics in manufacturing, the service and life-and-death policing matters. 

The film travels to Germany, China, Japan and the U.S. to understand and depict the various ways robots are influencing jobs and ways of living across cultures. 

The Truth About Killer Robots includes observations from professors, researchers, journalists and entrepreneurs around the world who have experience and expertise in computational technologies, biometrics, philosophy and robotics, to name a few. 

The documentary will also be available on HBO On Demand, HBO NOW, HBO GO, and partners’ streaming platforms.
