Melville House Books provides several services to humanity: not only do they publish lovely books, and create awesome Bartleby-quoting swag, they also maintain a blog that achieves a perfect mix of cool news and snark. They recently found two cartoons based on Ray Bradbury short stories, directed by Nazim Tulyakhodzhayev for the Uzbekfilm studio. The film is an adaptation of “There Will Come Soft Rains”, the saddest, sweetest robot house story you’re ever likely to read, and you can (and should!) watch it below.
You can head over to Melville House’s MobyLives! blog to read more about the film, and to see Tulyakhodzhayev’s adaptation of Bradbury’s other classic robot-house story, “The Veldt”!
