The Congress Clip - That Guy

An ageing actress (Robin Wright, playing a version of herself) decides to take her final job: preserving her digital likeness for a future Hollywood.

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.

Synopsis

Robin Wright stars as herself in this drama directed by Ari Folman. When mature actress Robin Wright realises that no studio will offer her work anymore due to her age and her unpredictability, she agrees to sell the rights to her digital body to be replicated in computer-animated films. 20 years later, while attending the Futurological Congress Conference, she discovers that the studio who recorded her digital image now have the technology to morph a human into their own personal avatar.
