Love comes in many forms, and in former SF DocFest Vanguard Award recipient Melody Gilbert’s Silicone Soul, the need for companionship and understanding is shown in the bond between humans and their synthetic companions. Tenderly captured by Gilbert, the bonds shown in the film are diverse and layered: from romantic relationships, to friendships, to a recreation of the love between mother and child. Silicone Soul does not allow for its subjects to be easily labeled or judged. Instead, the film is a collection of resoundingly human stories that reflect universal themes—the desire for love, compassion and communication.

What does this all mean for the future of human relationships? Ultimately, this is an observation about love, loneliness, secrets and, perhaps, acceptance. Who are we to judge who…or what…people choose to love?
