First Brief Teaser for Don Hertzfeldt's 'World of Tomorrow Episode Two'
Get ready! Acclaimed filmmaker Don Hertzfeldt is returning this year with another of his one-of-a-kind animated shorts called World of Tomorrow Episode Two (in full World of Tomorrow Episode Two: Burden of Other People's Thoughts), the sequel to his highly successful World of Tomorrow from a few years ago. If you've never seen it, stop what you are doing and watch World of Tomorrow right now - it's a brilliant "sci-fi" story based around the ramblings of Hertzfeldt's five-year-old niece. This sequel once again uses recordings of his niece to tell the follow-up story of Emily, who is swept into the brain of an incomplete backup clone of her future self, on a mission to reboot her broken mind. The film premiered at Fantastic Fest to some seriously rave reviews, including a rare A+ from David Ehrlich at Indiewire. I really can't wait to see this, I'm sure it's going to be just as mesmerizing and profound as the first one. Get your first glimpse.
