Don Hertzfeldt: World of Tomorrow 1 & 2

In 2015 animator Don Hertzfeldt released a little film called World of Tomorrow, its most important feat being crowned the International Audience Award Winner at GSFF15, but also, y’know, being referred to as ‘the best short film of the century’ (IndieWire) and ‘a must-see animated masterpiece’ (The Daily Beast), amongst other praise. Now Hertzfeldt has a sequel ready, World of Tomorrow Episode 2: The Burden of Other People’s Thoughts, and we’re showing both films as a special double bill on the big screen, along with some very special extras. Written around unscripted recordings of the filmmaker’s niece – who coincidentally lives in Scotland – World of Tomorrow 1 & 2 tell a unique, funny, and deeply humanist sci-fi tale drenched in both thought-provoking existentialism and the curious naiveté of main character Emily Prime. Who says stick figures can’t be art?
