Spike Jonze‘s new half-hour short film titled I’m Here will premiere tonight at the 2010 Sundance Film Festival. Jonze has launched an official website for the movie, which includes a streamable trailer.
Funded by Absolut Vodka, I’m Here is a robot love story celebrating a life enriched by creativity. The movie is set in contemporary L.A., where life moves at a seemingly regular pace with the exception of a certain amount of robot residents who love among the population. A male robot librarian lives a solitary and methodical life — devoid of creativity, joy and passion – until he meets an adventurous and free spirited female robot. The film stars British actor Andrew Garfield (Boy A, The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus, The Social Network) and Sienna Guillory, one of Maxim’s 100 sexiest women.
I’ll be screening the entire 31 minute short tonight, and will report back. For now, watch the trailer at Imheremovie.com or embedded below:
