About Don Hertzfeldt: It’s Such A Beautiful Day + ME

Don Hertzfeldt’s newest animated film ME is a 22-minute musical odyssey about trauma, technology, and the retreat of humanity into itself. It arrives alongside a re-release of his rarely-shown 2012 masterpiece, It’s Such a Beautiful Day - a film hailed by critics and audiences alike as one of the best animated films of all time.

A story in three chapters, It’s Such A Beautiful Day follows Bill, whose mysterious illness means he struggles with memory loss and strange visions. As his hallucinatory thoughts grow worse, dark and troubling events force Bill to reckon with the meaning of his life. Originally released as three short films over six years, the film was captured entirely in-camera on a 35mm rostrum animation stand.
