Feature Film

The Zero Theorem

Directed by Terry Gilliam (Brazil, Twelve Monkeys, Monty Python and the Holy Grail), THE ZERO THEOREM stars two-time Academy Award® winner Christoph Waltz (Django Unchained, Inglorious Basterds) as Qohen Leth, an eccentric and reclusive computer genius plagued with existential angst.  Living in isolation in a burnt-out church, Qohen is obsessively working on a mysterious project personally delegated to him by Management (Matt Damon) aimed at discovering the meaning of life - or the lack thereof - once and for all.  Increasingly disturbed by unwanted visits from people he doesn’t fully trust, including the flirtatious Bainsley (Mélanie Thierry), Management’s wunderkind son Bob (Lucas Hedges), his unpredictable colleague Joby (David Thewlis), and would-be digital therapist Dr. Shrink-Rom (Tilda Swinton), it’s only when he experiences the power of love and desire that he’s able to understand his own reason for being. 

Ten years in the making, Pat Rushin’s The Call began as a novel manuscript. After Rushin adapted the book for film, it became something quite a bit different from the original story. The Zero Theorem was optioned by The Zanuck Company and turned into the final film in director Terry Gilliam’s unofficial Orwellian trilogy, preceded by Brazil and 12 Monkeys. The original manuscript was first published in the online magazine The King’ s English, now defunct. But Burrow Press has rescued The Call from internet oblivion and will publish it in February of 2015.
