While we’ve seen no shortage of movies over the past year that have seen man facing the end times (“The World’s End,” “This Is The End,” “World War Z,” and many more), few if any have stopped to consider what will become of Earth’s history. But leave it filmmaker Bernardo Britto to explore just that question.
Arriving at the Sundance Film Festival this week, the animated short film “Yearbook” follows a man hired to compile the definitive history of human existence before the planet blows up. And in this exclusive teaser trailer, we see the blend of the surreal and funny that Britto is bringing to his picture, which looks like a bite-sized treat. And as a recipient of the National Board of Review animation grant in 2011 and selected as a Marcie Bloom fellow in 2012, Britto may be a name to keep an eye on down the line.
“Yearbook” starts screening at Sundance this weekend. Click here for details and watch below.
