“Tomorrow Is Always Too Long” is a love letter to Glasgow, Scotland’s largest city. Developed over the course of a year with various local communities, it paints a portrait of daily life as seen through the scope of human experience, from birth and youth through education and the criminal justice system to old age. The film is built around musical sequences starring non-professional singers accompanied by the Royal Scottish National Orchestra; public-access-style broadcasts with a cast of Glaswegians from every walk of life; and a series of intricate short animations depicting a night out on the town. The improbable lovechild of musicals and documentary, late-night television and silhouette animation, “Tomorrow Is Always Too Long” defies classification and embarks on an immersive, hypnotic trip into the heart of the city.
