Quotes

Emily: Emily Prime, there is another reason I have contacted you today. You retain an early memory that I have forgotten, that was very important to me. I wish to retrieve it from you before I die. I shall extract this memory from you now.
Emily Prime: This is me. And mommy. This is me and mommy walking. This is me and mommy walking.
Emily: Thank you, Emily. This will bring me great comfort in the days ahead.

Bold and imaginative sci-fi short
1 April 2015 | by See all my reviews

Don Hertzfeldt's first digitally animated short film (if you don't include his Simpsons couch gag) is about a girl called Emily who is visited by a clone of herself from the future who takes her on a tour of the world of tomorrow. Beautifully intimate and epic at the same time - the movie covers similar themes from Don's other film "It's such a beautiful day", featuring both humorous and poignant scenes about living life, finding love, and why we hold onto memories. Here it's done in a more sci-fi setting, the director's vision of the future being completely his own.

"World of Tomorrow" is definitely worth checking out. You can stream it now on "Vimeo On Demand" for $5 dollars, so go ahead and support an independent artist working on original ideas - which is becoming rare in today's entertainment industry.
