Though most of us haven’t had a chance to see the film yet, hopefully you remember Ari Folman‘s movie The Congress. After years of development, the movie premiered at Cannes back in May, and scored a US distribution deal from Drafthouse Films. The movie features Robin Wright as an actress who sells her likeness to a film studio, and Folman uses live-action scenes and some really wild animated sequences to explore her life. (Paul Giamatti, Jon Hamm, Kodi Smit-McPhee, Harvey Keitel and Danny Huston also star.)
The first trailer for the film was pretty mind-blowing, and now we’ve got two featurettes that explore specific parts of the film in just a bit more depth. They’re both quite short, but one shows one of the film’s dystopic visions, and how that slipstreams from live-action into animation. The other shows the basic elements of constructing the set for Wright’s character’s house.
The dystopian glimpse is the one you’ll really want to check out, since it shows off some new animation. Check out both below.
And here’s the version of ‘Forever Young’ used for the film, with Robin Wright performing the vocal take (via The Playlist):
