Vanguard Cinema: Faustbook
Directed by Erik Leiser
Experimental feature Faustbook explores the life of a troubled mortician,
Faustus, who embarks upon a dark odyssey through his work in search for truth.
As he delves deeper and deeper into a dark labyrinth of discovery he encounters
the devil, which offers answers for Faustusí soul. As time draws near, Faustus
has one last chance to save himself. An uncanny parallel to the movie is the
untimely and controversial passing of the films key actor, Jacob Faust, who was
shot dead by San Diego police on April 4th 2005.
Original soundtrack by Jeffrey Leiser
