Based on the novel 'The Futurological Congress' by Stenislaw Lem (1971), this futuristic partial animated film explores the stakes of our digital world, its dehumanisation & man’s obsession with chemical substances.

Max Richter composed a wonderful dreamlike classical score, which perfectly fits the animated, dreamy & hallucinogenic mood of the picture. His dramatic & melancholic compositions support the labyrinthine narration of this true visual masterpiece. In addition, there are 2 classical pieces by Schubert ('Trio in E-Flat Major, D. 929') & chopin ('Nocturne Op. 27/1 in C# minor') along with 2 marvellous covers of Robin Wright performing Leonard’s Cohen 'If It Be Your Will' & Bob Dylan’s 'Forever Young'.
