ABOUT

NORIKO

NORIKO tells the story of dystopian future times at the end of human civilization. Kestas Kukuris lost his wife Dalia and decides to bring her back to life by building her a robot twin. This however displeases the communities priest, for in his eyes it is an act of blasphemy...

It is a story about loss and grief. The inability to let things go and accept time as for what it is - inevitably moving on - is probably one of the biggest human weaknesses there is. Confronting this fear of time by something as emotionless and timeless as a machine, seems to be a paradox mankind might actually encounter in the future, as we more and more aproach artificial intelligence.
