Still from the film
 

Watch the first film written by a computer algorithm

 We see H pull a book from a shelf, flip through it while speaking, and then put it back.

H: In the future with more unemployment, young people are forced to sell blood. That’s the first thing I can do.”

And so begins the script of Sunspring – a romance, mystery, sci-fi film written by an artificial intelligence algorithm that named itself Benjamin.

The film is a sci-fi look into our own future perhaps, a world in which even our movies are computer generated.  However, as you can tell from the film, this future is not here yet. The film doesn't make a lot of sense and the dialogue sounds very unnatural.  For now, the computers should keep their day job and leave the screenwriting to us humans, but not for long.
