Synopsis by Nathan Southern
Guy-Manuel de Homem-Christo and Thomas Bangalter, the two founding members of the house electronica band Daft Punk, wrote and directed the memorably eccentric and bizarre sci fi opus Daft Punk's Electroma. Peter Hurteau and Michael Reich star as Hero Robot #1 and Hero Robot #2, two androids clad in ever-present motorcycle helmets. The two drive through the desert en route to Inyo County, CA, where the entire population, regardless of age, dresses in identical attire. Upon arrival in the town, the two enter a scientific facility where experimenters pour hot latex over their helmets to make nightmarish flesh-covered masks that infuriate town residents. The robots then embark on a lengthy trek across an endless expanse of salt flats.
