Aurore is a voice without a body, she lives in a crevice, she resides on the interface. At a retirement home in the south of Paris, she provides company for the residents. Technically though, she can work in many places at once. Wherever Aurore appears, she brings warmth to the dimly lit rooms, a glow to people’s eyes and takes the weight of the world off people’s shoulders. She’s there for the people, she really cares for the world, twenty-four-seven. Fatigue is foreign to her.

Playing with the aesthetic codes of three genres – documentary, corporate and experimental film – and loosely structured in three chapters, ‘Aurore’ investigates the affective dimensions of these genres.

This semi-documentary science-fiction about the future of care and the automatization of affect was  developed in the context of the collaborative project Pepper Perceval during an artist residency at CAC Brétigny, Paris. All the elements that appear in this film were created in collaboration with the participants: primary school children, high school students and seniors. Aurore is an attempt to write science-fiction differently: both in dialogue and in vernacular.


Aurore is a voice that is meant to make people happy. For example, at an old-age home. She has no body and knows neither pain nor loneliness. Marlies Pöschl’s collaboratively created three-act film reflects on automated caregiving, programmability of affects, and the self-awareness of artificial intelligence.
