Q&A with Ted Fendt on October 5 (joined by actor Calvin Engime) & 7

A group of young intellectuals partake in playful rounds of academic sparring in Fendt’s second feature, an über-cinephilic treatise on language, literature, and theology. Between Dante discussion groups and solitary linguistic exercises, Cal (Calvin Engime) engages his friends in a series of discursive debates that, while reaching far and wide across history, eventually correlate to more interpersonal concerns. Shot on rough-hewn 16mm with a formal rigor to match its characters’ studied personas, Fendt’s encyclopedic take on cinema stimulates the mind as much as it does the senses.
