The Congress

The Congress

Director of highly acclaimed Waltz with Bashir, Ari Folman is back with a staggering creation. A colorful hallucinogenic trip into a surreal future where nothing is what it seems to be.

Actress Robin Wright (played by Robin Wright) is starting to get old in the eyes of Hollywood and is offered one last contract. A studio wants to digitalize her by scanning her body as well as her soul and buy the right to use her in all kinds of films, forever. But what on earth does that really mean?

The Congress is based on a sci-fi novel by Stanislaw Lem (Solaris) and offers an array of famous faces and voices in addition to figures such as Jesus, Grace Jones and Frida Kahlo plus Hayao Miyazaki-esque characters and early Disney aesthetics. Don’t miss the opportunity to be enchanted by Folman’s world on the big screen for the first time, you will most likely wish to see it again (and maybe again).
