What Is It?
2005, Volcanic Eruptions, 72 min, USA, Dir: Crispin Hellion Glover & David Brothers

Veteran actor Crispin Hellion Glover describes his directorial debut as “the adventures of a young man whose principal interests are snails, salt, a pipe and how to get home, as tormented by an hubristic racist inner psyche." Part one of the “IT” trilogy, the film features a cast largely comprised of actors with Down Syndrome, with Glover appearing as the young man's inner psyche and actress Fairuza Balk voicing one of the snails. “It's like Fellini on psychedelics - wildly creative but completely twisted." - Jane Ganahl, San Francisco Examiner.
