First Footage From Ari Folman's THE CONGRESS!

Todd Brown, Founder and Editor
Director Ari Folman set the animation world on its ear a couple years back with his stunning Waltz With Bashir, the animated documentary based on his recollections of the war in Lebanon. And while Waltz certainly triggered some debate as to historical accuracy - perfectly natural given the film's central concept - there was no doubt at all that Folman was a simply enormous talent as an animator and director.

Folman's new project - a loose adaptation of Stanislaw Lem's The Futurological Congress - is greatly anticipated but information has been slow to come out. We know it stars Robin Wright as Robin Wright and that it will begin in live action before shifting gradually into Folman's signature animated style. But what else will he do to Lem's story in the process of bringing it to the screen?

Well, see for yourself. The first footage has arrived online. The quality isn't the best but this is certainly one hell of a tease.
