The Congress - Win a StudioCanal DVD bundle

The Congress

TO celebrate the release of Ari Folman’s The Congress in cinemas on August 15, 2014, we’ve got a competition for five lucky people to win their own StudioCanal bundle (containing the official soundtrack from The Congress featuring International artwork as well as Persepolis and Spirited Away on DVD).

From Ari Folman, visionary director of Waltz With Bashir, comes a journey beyond imagination. An ageing actress (Robin Wright, playing a version of herself) decides to take her final job: preserving her digital likeness for a future Hollywood.

Through a deal brokered by her loyal, longtime agent (Harvey Keitel) and the head of Miramount Studios (Danny Huston), her alias will be controlled by the studio, and will star in any film they want with no restrictions. In return, she receives healthy compensation so she can care for her ailing son, and her digitised character will stay forever young.

Twenty years later, under the creative vision of the studio’s head animator (Jon Hamm), Wright’s digital double rises to immortal stardom. With her contract expiring, she is invited to take part in “The Congress” convention as she makes her comeback straight into the world of future fantasy cinema.

The Congress also stars Paul Giamatti, Kodi Smit-McPhee, Danny Huston, Sami Gayle, Michael Stahi-David, Michael Landes and Sarah Shahi.
