Director Bob Blinn set out to shoot a film using only 100 feet of 16mm film. During the course of a few afternoons in downtown Chicago 1976, he shot several segments.

30 years later he found the can containing this 100 feet of film in a box in the basement. He decided to finish the film. He cut the film, composed the music, and wrote a poem to the visuals. He calls this videoetry.

 The film investigates the idea of a person finding direction in a concrete world. St. Christopher, the patron saint of travelers is lost. If he’s lost, how are we supposed to find our way?
