Animation to us transcends genres and represent an immense potential visually, because every espect of animation is created by the filmmaker. For 'Automatonomy', we dug deep into our own lives and laid on the table social issues that were close to us. Through this film, we sought to investigate the deep underlying nature of xenophobia and its negative effects as seen in the world we live in now.
