    About

    A retired high school English teacher is confronted by a former student who failed her class fifteen years prior. He then involves her in a feature-length presentation on Moby-Dick and the science of reading.

    The resulting film is a free-wheeling depiction of the many challenges we face on the search for deeper meaning — in life as well as in Moby-Dick — and the teachers in our lives who can guide us to it.


    Filmmakers and cast in attendance, including Austin teacher Vicki Hebert & the descendants of Herman Melville, Peter Whittemore & Elizabeth Doss.

    This project is supported in part by the Cultural Arts Division of the City of Austin Economic Development Department.
