The first screening of Spike Jonze’s latest work, the robot-centric short film I’m Here. This 30-minute short is the big draw for the Shorts Program 1, which seems to be buzzing brighter than the opening night film Howl in the halls of festival HQ.
Put simply, I’m Here is a robot love story. It is creatively constructed (visually) and if I know Jones, it will appeal to people who wear skinny jeans. It will also likely be entertaining and thoughtful. We will know for sure, pending my ability to get tickets to this evening’s first screening. More as the snow-filled day develops.
For now, please enjoy the brief trailer below. Read more coverage here: Sundance 2010 homepage.
