The Zeno Question

Directed by Theodore Schaefer

A prismatic view of college and the existential angst encountered when faced with questioning one's purpose and direction in life. A philosophical comedy that intertwines ancient greek philosophy and playwriting with modern day escapism and dread.

Supported by a 2015 Davey Film Grant
