Florida Film Festival: Bots High Trailer




Here is an early bit of Florida Film Festival coverage coming your way.

You check out the new trailer for Bots High, Joey Daoud's feature length documentary about a bunch of high school kids down in Miami designing, building and competing with their own battle bots during the 2009-10 school year.

Bots High follows three teams of high school robotics geeks who build and battle their way to a national robotics competition in Miami. Our heroes include genius inventor Will, who constructs seemingly indestructible bots that unfortunately self-destruct (sometimes in a cloud of smoke and flames), and My Mechanical Romance, a team of Catholic school girls who stand out amid male bot participants with a combination of beauty, brains, and fashion sense.

The doc is well worth the time to see (more on this in the paper, I promise), but unfortunately only has one screening during the festival, at the Regal Winter Park Village, on Sunday, 4-17 at noon.
