The Immortal Augustus Gladstone is a a feature film written and directed by Robyn Miller (co-creator of the Myst and Riven videogames). It's about a man who claims he is 150 years old. While squatting in an abandoned hotel, Augustus tells outrageous tales of befriending Andy Warhol, living with French counts, and mingling with vampires. At last, Augustus sets off in search of a lost descendant in an attempt to bring meaning to his immortal existence. Boing Boing, the directory of wonderful things, is proud to present this feature film!
