History Repeats Itself | Robots of Brixton (Video)

"History repeats itself; first as tragedy, then as farce..." 
Strolling through Vimeo subscriptions today I found this well done animated film entitled Robots of Brixton. I don't want to say too much about it but what I will tell you is that it came out 2 months ago, before the rioting in the UK earlier this August.
 Here is the description from the director/creator  Kibwe Tavares
Brixton has degenerated into a disregarded area inhabited by London's new robot workforce - robots built and designed to carry out all of the tasks which humans are no longer inclined to do. The mechanical population of Brixton has rocketed, resulting in unplanned, cheap and quick additions to the skyline.

The film follows the trials and tribulations of young robots surviving at the sharp end of inner city life, living the predictable existence of a populous hemmed in by poverty, disillusionment and mass unemployment. When the Police invade the one space which the robots can call their own, the fierce and strained relationship between the two sides explodes into an outbreak of violence echoing that of 1981.
