Plagued by mental instability, Margraue’s relationship with his students deteriorates until he takes solace in an imaginary, post-apocalyptic world. In that fantastic realm, the teacher is revered by self-disciplined apprentices eager for knowledge amidst the widespread loss of technology.

This Canadian film unfolds in three distinct acts that seem at first disparate, but come together to form a singular tale. The movie is brought to Mobile in conjunction with Simple Machine, an indie film distributor looking to expose more audiences to the proliferation of films popping up with greater frequency.

Entrance to the film and access to the galleries is all free until 9 p.m.
