Dirty Computer - an emotion picture* by Janelle Monáe.

Dirty Computer tells the story of “Jane 57821” (Monáe), a defiant free spirit who lives in a near-future dystopia and takes joy in celebrating herself, her love for fellow rebel Zen (Tessa Thompson), and the queer black community that accepts them both. But when we meet her, she’s strapped to a chair in a stark facility, where a disembodied voice tells her she’s “a dirty computer” due for a cleaning. – summary from Vox.com article
