The Diagonale’20 was cancelled due to official measures to contain the spread of COVID-19.

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-consciousness" of artificial intelligence.
