A comedy about life (or the lack thereof) in Academia. Two young scientists (a Quantum Physicist and a Molecular Biologist) search for significance in the high stakes world of Academic research. This is the sequel to the first film adaptation of the popular comic strip Piled Higher and Deeper, created by cartoonist Jorge Cham. Filmed on location at the California Institute of Technology, the new film takes a humorous look at the world of academia through the eyes of four grad students, and features real academics in many of the roles. It was funded in large part by scholars and researchers through a successful Kickstarter campaign.

Cosponsored with the Graduate & Professional Student Programming Board, the Engineering Graduate Student Association and the Big Red Barn.
