Giveaways: The Congress DVDs


If you haven’t seen Waltz with Bashir, you should…now. The animated docu-drama from Israeli filmmaker Ari Folman was a layered, powerful, haunting, poetic, and downright masterful piece of cinema, and his follow-up The Congress doesn’t disappoint.

The great folks over at Madman Entertainment have given us DVD copies of The Congress to give away to our Australia-based readers. We recently reviewed The Congress, describing it as “science fiction in its purest form, an impossible thought experiment that questions our definitions of self, perspective and reality.” Believe us when we say that you need to see, nay, own this one.

All you have to do to be in with a chance to win is scroll down and answer a ridiculously simple question.

What would you give for the role of a lifetime?

More than two decades after catapulting to stardom with THE PRINCESS BRIDE, an aging actress (Robin Wright, playing a version of herself) decides to take her final job: preserving her digital likeness for a future Hollywood. A Hollywood studio will control her captured ‘image’, and she 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.

20 years later, under the creative vision of the studio’s head animator (Jon Hamm, MAD MEN), 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
