Before "Battle Bots", "The Matrix", "The Terminator" or any of their imitators, there was Survival Research Laboratories. Founded by the visionary Mark Pauline, SRL utilizes incredibly complex props and robotics to create a unique spectacle unlike anything seen before. In this DVD collection Jon Reiss encapsulates the humor, terror, artistic bracado and technical genius behind the menacing machines and weaves it into a gloriously cacophonous whole. This DVD shows the development of SRL from it's earliest performances in front of a handful of people in San Francisco to grand spectacles staged for thousands in the U.S. and Europe.
