Description

"Call Jeff Wood's The Glacier what you will--a novel-in-screenplay-form; a prose poem on the themes of death, suburbia, and the cruel symmetries of cosmic time; a surreal prophecy from America's anguished heartland--it will remain what it was always aiming to be, and that's one of the most indelible and visionary movies you've ever seen."

--Jon Raymond, author of Old Joy, Wendy and Lucy, and Meek's Cutoff

A spellbinding work in the spirit of Tarkovsky or Jodorowsky that reimagines the American frontier at the turn of the millennium, a time when suburban development was metastasizing and the Social was about to implode. Following a caterer at a convention center, a surveyor residing in a storage unit, and the masses lining up for an Event on the horizon, The Glacier is a poetic rendering of the pre-apocalypse and a requiem for the passing of one world into another.
