The Zero Theorem
Filmfest 2014

Set in a future London, THE ZERO THEOREM stars double Academy Award® winner Christoph Waltz as Qohen Leth, an eccentric and reclusive computer genius plagued with existential angst. He lives in isolation in a burnt-out chapel, waiting for a phone call which he is convinced will provide him with answers he has long sought.
Qohen works on a mysterious project, delegated to him by 'Management', aimed at discovering the purpose of existence – or the lack thereof – once and for all. But his solitary existence is disturbed by visits from the flirtatious Bainsley, and Bob, Management's wunderkind son. Yet it is only once he experiences the power of love and desire that he is able to understand his very reason for being.
