Robot Stories and More

Greg Pak's ROBOT STORIES won a special jury award for emotional truth at the 2003 FFF. Greg gave one of the sweetest speeches ever and hailed the crazy bowling party we had that year. Good times. Greg's book Robot Stories and More Screenplays is currently out in paperback. We expect to hear lots more from Greg in the future! Best of luck from the gang at Enzian.

"Greg Pak's fantasy anthology piece, which details the ways robots have complicated the lives of humans, has a dexterous sense of wonder...Mr. Pak's feel for melodrama adds a piercing and thoughtful end note similar to the emotional gravity found in Stephen King novellas like The Body and Rita Hayworth and Shawshank Redemption, both in Mr. King's collection Different Seasons. But it's Mr. Pak's respect for the actors that he's selected that seems to work hand-in-exoskeleton with the thematic mission of the protagonists in each chapter of Stories... The most startling aspect of Robot Stories is not the mix the filmmaker built from spare parts left on the curb, but Mr. Pak's evolving dramatic acumen. He's a talent with a future."
