Robin Wright, playing a washed-up future version of herself, receives an unusual offer from Mirramount Studios. They would like to scan her entire being into their computers and purchase ownership of her image for an astronomical fee. Now that her digital image is secure, Wright goes on to be an ageless movie star for years to come. "The Congress" is both bizarre and enchanting, a kaleidoscopic mix of live-action and animation. 

For additional information and to view a trailer for The Congress, please check out this narrative feature's home on our festival website here.


Kristy Breneman is the Atlanta Film Festival's Programming Director; this narrative feature was chosen by Kristy for exhibition, out of over 300 narrative feature submissions, for our 2014 festival audience and filmmakers.
