Alma (Maren Eggert) is an accomplished researcher at the Pergamon Museum in Berlin, leading a team studying ancient cuneiform writing. In order to obtain research funds for her work, she grudgingly agrees to participate in an extraordinary study, one in which she is an experimental variable. For three weeks, she must live with a humanoid android tailored specifically to her unique character and needs. Alma is skeptical when she meets Tom (Dan Stevens), a robot almost totally indistinguishable from a flesh-and-blood man. Tom’s algorithm learns from Alma, so that he may adapt and change to fulfill his programming to become her perfect partner. A playfully romantic tale, I’m Your Man (2021) examines questions of love, longing, and what makes us human. Germany has selected I’m Your Man to represent the country in the best international film category for the upcoming 94th Academy Awards in 2022.

Co-writer/director Maria Schrader will join Pollock Theater Director Matt Ryan for a virtual Q&A.

This event will not include screening. I’m Your Man may be streamed in advance on Amazon Prime or Apple TV. If you would like to register for a free screener link, courtesy of Bleecker Street Films, please click this link to register by Thursday, November 4 at 5:00 PM.
