Alternative Math

2017 | Comedy | Short Film


Living in a post-fact United states of America

A well meaning math teacher finds herself trumped by a post-fact America. Alternative Math (2017) is a deeply layered and remarkably sophisticated intelligent comedy.

What makes this film so special is that it functions on so many layers. It works comically due to it’s wonderfully executed reducto-absurdum, but just a little bit deeper we find an allegory for our modern world carrying a concerning warning. What happens when beliefs are taken too such a degree that basic knowledge is questioned?

Written and Directed by David Maddox
Starring: Allyn Carrell, Cole Whitaker, Mykle McCoslin
