Northwest Film Forum is proud to present Crispin Hellion Glover's (BACK TO THE FUTURE, WILLARD) long awaited WHAT IS IT? a unique, mythic, visionary film. It's almost impossible to describe this labor of love. Glover spent nine years making an amazing piece of experimental cinema, acting as writer, director, producer, star and sole financier. If asked what the film is about, he would say, "It's about the adventures of a young man whose principal interests are snails, salt, a pipe and how to get home. He's tormented by a hubristic, racist inner psyche." Most of the cast have Down Syndrome, and the acts in which they engage will have you squirming in your seats. Glover leaves no taboo untouched in this whirlpool of wild and weird images that may recall of Bunuel's L'AGE D'OR or Jodorowsky's HOLY MOUNTAIN.
