Are You a Fan of Sci-Fi Animation? Here, We Have a Trailer For You. [VIDEO]

Submitted For Your Approval


The trailer for The Congress has been around for a few weeks, since before the film’s debut at the Cannes Film Festival, but it just crossed my path following the announcement that the film’s been picked up for distribution by Drafthouse Films.

And… well… watch it. Loosely based on legendary sci-fi writer Stanisław Lem‘s The Futurological Congress, it follows actress Robin Wright, playing herself, as an actress who sells a digital version of herself to a movie studio, following which she finds herself trapped in a series of trippy animated fantasyscapes. The film’s director is Ari Folman, who’s taken animation to interesting places before with his excellent 2008 animated documentary Waltz with Bashir.

The Congress will be released theatrically and on VOD in 2014. Can that be early 2014, please, Drafthouse Films? Like January 1st?
