Jacob Faust in Faustbook


2005 R

Faustus (Jacob Faust) is a mortician on a quest for truth, an odyssey that sinks him further into his work. But each step he takes toward accessing the dark recesses of his mind brings him closer the devil, who offers him knowledge in exchange for his soul. This experimental feature is based on the classic German tale of Dr. Faust, as popularized in literature by Christopher Marlowe and Johann Wolfgang von Goethe.
