Marguerite, a young girl in high school, tapes her day at school as it tumbles into a progressively weirder world. Simulathon explores the notion of the simulacrum, particularly tackling the ambiguity and arbitrary nature of “humanity.”

The project first premiered at the Fire Escape Films screening, June 2016.
