THE CONGRESS 03.04.14
SPACES is a proud community sponsor of THE CONGRESS (http://www.clevelandfilm.org/films/2014/the-congress) at the 38th Cleveland International Film Festival. From the CIFF site:
Ever wonder what Robin Wright (The Princess Bride, Forest Gump) has been up to the past couple years? Well, you're about to find out. Set in an alternate reality that could only come from the mind of Ari Folman, Robin Wright is about to sell her body to the Hollywood mega-studio "Miramount." (Sound familiar?) Miramount is going to scan every inch of her body and digitally control her image. They can cast her in any role they'd like: Oscar®-bait, sci-fi movies, even pornography. While the digitized Robin is out earning the studio massive profits, a new technology emerges: the ability to become other people through an advanced chemical form of virtual reality. Suddenly, Robin finds herself in a surreal animated world full of magical wonder and not-so-earthly delights. But as Robin falls further down the virtual rabbit hole, she also fades from the ones who love her most. Part live action and part spectacular animation, THE CONGRESS is an ambitious sci-fi allegory that reinvents itself at every turn. -C.P.
