synopsis
A little girl is taken on a mind-bending tour of her distant future.

director
Don Hertzfeldt is an Academy Award-nominated American independent filmmaker whose animated short films include Billy's Balloon, I Am So Proud of You, The Meaning of Life, and Rejected. His work has played around the world, receiving over 200 awards. Seven of his films have screened in competition at the Sundance Film Festival, a festival record. He is also the only filmmaker to have won the Sundance Grand Jury Prize for Short Film twice. His first feature film, It's Such a Beautiful Day, was named by several critics as one of the Top Ten Films of 2012. In 2014, Time Out New York named It's Such a Beautiful Day # 16 on their list of the "100 Best Animated Movies Ever Made." In 2014, Hertzfeldt wrote, directed, and animated a special two minute intro for the season premiere episode of The Simpsons. After creating animated films for nearly twenty years using traditional tools (pencil, paper, and 35mm cameras), World of Tomorrow represents Hertzfeldt's first 100% digital production.

filmmaker's note
The voice cast stars English illustrator Julia Pott alongside Hertzfeldt's four-year-old niece, Winona. Hertzfeldt recorded conversations with Winona and then rewrote many of the film's events - and Julia's dialogue - to suit Winona's questions and reactions.
