About The Event
Hoping to find a cure to his sickness, "The Professor" follows Agatha on a strange and risky journey into a forgotten but not entirely deserted urban wasteland. The passing of time and the disintegration of nature, institutions, and people all set the tone for this mysterious and unsettling animated/live-action meditation on guilt, regret, terror, and its consequences. www.agathathemovie.com
