March 19, 2010

STOCKHOLM, March 19, 2010 /PRNewswire/ — Today, Spike Jonze’s highly
anticipated short film, I’m 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. I’m Here is a creative collaboration with ABSOLUT VODKA,
acknowledging the brand’s position as a pioneering and culture-shaping brand.

I’m Here is a love story about two robots living in contemporary Los
. 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.
