Jackpot Records is offering up a free screening of Daft Punk's Electroma this Friday at the Secret Society (116 NE Russell St). Daft Punk made a movie? I wonder what it's about?

An odyssey of two robots who journey across a mythic American landscape of haunting, surreal beauty on a quest to become human. This silent feature-length film made its international debut at the 2006 Cannes Film Festival. With its breathtaking cinematography, innovative filming techniques, and above all, its underlying search for humanity within a dystopian environment, Daft Punk have delivered a film that finds a common thread with their previous work, while exploring new horizons as directors.

Yes, a silent movie from a musical act. The free screening starts at 9pm and is 21 and over, since robot masks and lasers seem to frighten small children.
