"Wire Cutters" is an adorable & award-winning animated short film about a robot miner sent to another planet and all the things that happen when he suddenly bumps into another bot. It is also about the dangers of exporting our capitalism to outer space and the soul-crushing regret we all will feel when we realize that we are unable to change our ways, dooming us to greed-encrusted loneliness and, potentially, oblivion.
