The story of the ROBOT HEART is a psychological portrait of the group PRINCESS DRAGONMOM, forced to finally face the painful wrath of one thousand robot victim’s relentless heartbeats. It is truly a tale of conscience. ROBOT HEART is simultaneously a horror story and sci-fi mystery told from the rarely seen and heard robot's perspective.
After 15 years of robot related noise performance/destruction, you the viewer finally get to see what makes the PDM robot really, as they say "TICK". PDM aim to present an example of how harsh, abstract, and hypnotic electronic noise can be used in conjunction with traditional iconic cardboard robot imagery to relate a message of tolerance and empathy in these trying modern times, specifically relating to the multiple struggles within our small town of NEW DETROIT, and in a larger sense the USA as a whole.
The robot will have his heart at any cost. Is this the end of PRINCESS DRAGONMOM? Is it the dawning of a new CARDBOARD AGE? Will the robot sacrifice UFO FACTORY as penance for the collective sins of it's proprietors? Are we lost? Has our human lust for industry, machinery and power finally gotten the better of us? Who stole the robot's heart?
Or did he have it along????
