BIONIC (2011) Short Film: Greg Williams, Zahia Dehar

Zahia Dehar, Bionic

The Bionic Short Film has premiered. Greg WilliamsBionic (2011) stars Zahia Dehar. Bionic‘s plot synopsis: “Bionic is a futuristic short film where a sex doll (Zahia Dehar) exercises her own free will”. The best part of this short film, besides the obvious, are the under-sexed, pervert scientists in the lab, leering, sneaking peeks at the sex doll and the action in its finale. The sex doll in Bionic could easily be an early version of the Fem-bots from the Austin Powers films.

For those that are wondering, this short film was shot with Red Mysterium-X camera. Nathaniel Rogers over at The Film Experience asked the hilarious question: “Is it wrong to interpret her [the sex doll] vacant eroticism as satirical commentary on Britney Spears’s airheaded marionette carnality?” Great observation on the duality between a synthetic sexual construct and a PR, manufactured one.

The entire storyline for Bionic (contains spoilers):

The film begins in a laboratory, stark an cold. We rapidly discover the “object” of experimentation in her box. During the day the robot woman is attached to machines by a kind of umbilical cord located on the back of her neck. She is surrounded by scientists who put her through numerous scientific tests. At night, while no longer “plugged-in” the creature mysteriously takes on life and begins to explore the place where she has been confined. She dreams of the world outside while she begins to build a mysterious module that will eventually give her freedom. When the moment arrives, she makes her escape in the most unexpected way before disappearing into the streets of London…
