World of Tomorrow Trailer

Tomorrow, today. You may not have heard of this one yet, but get ready. Don Hertzfeldt's mesmerizing new stick figure short film World of Tomorrow won the Short Film Grand Jury Prize at Sundance 2015 this year, and earned some rave reviews as seen with the quotes that show up in this trailer. It's only a teaser trailer, giving us just a glimpse at the "astonishing… dazzling… spectacular…" short which is also playing at SXSW before hitting VOD at the end of March. I don't know what the plot is, but it involves stick figures and a little girl who goes on a "mind-bending tour of the distant future." One of the quotes in this talks about how it has more big ideas than most sci-fi, which is laughably absurd, but just enough to pique my interest.

Here's the teaser trailer for Don Hertzfeldt's short film World of Tomorrow, found via FSR on Vimeo:

World of Tomorrow

The only short synopsis from Sundance explains: "A little girl is taken on a mind-bending tour of the distant future." The full short film runs 17 minutes, and will be available online + VOD starting March 31st via Hertzfeldt's website World of Tomorrow is written, directed, produced, animated and edited by Don Hertzfeldt based out of Austin, TX (you can follow him @donhertzfeldt). His past work includes a 62-minute stick figure movie called It's Such a Beautiful Day, currently available on Netflix. Read more about Hertzfeldt and his work in this Buzzfeed interview here. World of Tomorrow premiered at the Sundance Film Festival where it won the Short Film Grand Jury Prize. I am very much looking forward to it.
