World of Tomorrow Trilogy + Me

Directed by

Wed 7/31: 7:30p






One night only, Don Hertzfeldt’s World of Tomorrow trilogy comes to the big screen with “Me,” his new short film!

“Me” is a 22-minute musical odyssey about trauma, technology, and the retreat of humanity into itself. Indiewire has described it as “soul-shaking” and “a triumph.”

Don Hertzfeldt is a two-time Academy Award nominee whose animated films include It's Such a Beautiful Day, the World of Tomorrow series, and Rejected. His work has played around the world, receiving hundreds of awards, and in 2014 made a special guest appearance on The Simpsons. Eight of his films have screened in competition at the Sundance Film Festival, where he is the only filmmaker to have won the Grand Jury Prize for Short Film twice. After animating for over twenty years using traditional tools (pencil, paper, and 35mm cameras), World of Tomorrow was Hertzfeldt's first digital production. Across the three episodes of the trilogy, a little girl is taken on a mind-bending tour of her distant future.
