Iím Here, Written and Directed by Spike Jonze Ė Released Today on imheremovie.com
STOCKHOLM, March 19 /PRNewswire/ — Today, Spike Jonzeís highly anticipated short film, Iím Here, is globally released on http://www.imheremovie.com. This 30-minute robot love story was premiered at the 2010 Sundance Film Festival and thereafter screened at the Berlinale. Now it is made available to viewers around the world, through a striking online cinema experience. Iím Here is a creative collaboration with ABSOLUT VODKA, acknowledging the brandís position as a pioneering and culture-shaping brand.
I'm Here is a love story about two robots living in contemporary Los Angeles. The sad-eyed robot librarian Sheldon (Andrew Garfield) leads a lonely and methodical life, until he one day meets Francesca, a creative and free-spirited female robot (played by Sienna Guillory). Robot romance develops and the story is just as beautiful as it is unpredictable.
"Iím Here marks an evolution of our longstanding commitment to creativity, and I am incredibly proud to make this film available to a global online audience. Spike Jonze has made a magical short film, which takes our creative collaborations to new heights. We could have done a commercial or a print campaign, but this is so much more interesting. And much more ABSOLUT," says Anna Malmhake, Vice President Global Marketing, at The Absolut Company.
