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.

Existential dread has never been so appealing
8 October 2018 | by rachelgallitSee all my reviews

As much as this short film hurt my brain, it entertained me to no end. When a young girl, Emily, is visited by a clone of herself from decades in the future, she is taken on an adventure into a virtual world. The tale of a clone-boy named David that aged and died as he lived, in a test tube display, tugs at the heartstrings almost as much as Emily's childlike lack of understanding of the travesties society will commit in the distant future. The tour of Emily memories (or rather her future as the memories are those of clones that are not yet made) enthralls the audience for a few thoroughly enjoyable and confusing minutes. Premiering at the Sundance Film Festival and immediately winning the Grand Jury Prize for Short Film, this film was directed by Don Hertzfeld; director of critically acclaimed short Everything will be OK, I Am So Proud of You, and It's Such a Beautiful Day. Hertzfeld attempts to pack an emotional punch in a short time, and boy does he ever. With simple art style, and minimalistic dialogue and almost no score, the star of this short are the impacts of the stories being told, from Emily to herself.
