One of the buzziest little projects to exit the Sundance Film Festival was animator Don Hertzfeldt’s sci-fi short World of Tomorrow, and now we finally have the first trailer.
The film, which follows “a little girl who is taken on a mind-bending tour of the distant future,” is one of the trippiest sci-fi projects we’ve seen in a long time. It uses wild colors, stick figures and a visual style all its own. It might look a bit strange, but the combination managed to snag the Short Film Grand Jury Prize at the Sundance Film Festival. No small feat, obviously.
Reviews have been fantastic for the 17-minute short film, and it also touches on the influence technology has on humanity as a whole. All while looking very, very cool. Though you many not have heard of him, Hertzfeldt (It’s Such a Beautiful Day) is an accomplished short filmmaker, and also created this very cool (and super-weird) Simpsons couch gag.

World of Tomorrow will be available on VOD services March 31.
