The World Premiere of Ontologica! or A Brief Explanation of Absolutely Everything that is Known about Absolutely Everything will take place on June 25th, 2011 at Tribeca Cinemas as a part of VisionFest '11. The film will screen in competition during VisionFest's singular Saturday night slot in the festival's Independent Vision Showcase.

"There's something to offend just about everyone in this movie" says its director, "if every person who comes to the screening is still there by the end, I haven't done my job."

Ontologica! is an experimental feature length film about "Everything" by filmmaker Skylar Gordon, produced by The Cosmic Curtain. VisionFest director Bruno Derlin has called it "the film most unlike any other film than any other film you've ever seen before."

Ontologica! is an unprecedented and novel assortment of animation, motion graphics, archival footage, original music, and information that takes its viewers on a journey through time and space completely unlike anything they've experienced before. It uses its unique experimental format to explore virtually every major area of human knowledge and experience, including: cosmology, quantum physics, evolutionary biology, spirituality, sexuality, neurology, and philosophy, among many others. The film tackles a vast array of monumental and poignant themes such as "humanity's place in eternity, and the exact cosmological size of God's Penis," according to its writer/director Skylar Gordon.

The unrated cut of the film contains mature language, nudity, and subject matter intended for an adult audience. VisionFest will not be admitting anyone under 17 into the screening. "There's something to offend just about everyone in this movie" says its director, "if every person who comes to the screening is still there by the end, I haven't done my job."

VisionFest is a domestic film festival devoted to supporting the most cutting edge auteurs in American independent cinema, run by the Domani Vision Film Society, who's mission is to "bring you tomorrow's visionaries today." This is VisionFest's 11th year. "I'm quite excited to be premiering Ontologica! at VisionFest. They're a bold festival that isn't afraid to take risks. Most film festivals probably wouldn't have the audacity to show something like this" Says Gordon, because "they'd know better."
