“Outlier” is a dream-like, pseudo-experimental short film that focuses on themes of identity, capitalism, filmmaking, absurdism, profession and artistic pursuit. Beginning with the viewing of a lecture given by a theatre director focused on acting, the story rises into a desolate prairie where two opposing characters journey into their own metaphysical outcomes and enlightenments. “Outlier” entangles abstracted concepts of method acting, probability, cordyceps and quantum physics. To resemble the inherent feeling succeeding a notable lifetime experience in conclusion, the film attempts to provoke a feeling of amble and lostness.
