Based on a true account of a man who wanders in out of the wilderness with a weird combination of amnesia, aphasia and guilt, halfway through what appears to be a spoof of psychiatric investigations, the film turns a sharp corner into the dreadful dilemma of survival by cannibalism. “…Low Visibility is a compelling look at a man outside the circle of humanity yet caught in its vortex of ritual justice.” — P.G. S.F. premiere.

Low Visibility is Canadian filmmaker Patricia Gruben’s first independent feature-length film. Her award-winning Sifted Evidence was shown at the Cinematheque in October 1984. Gruben will also appear at the Pacific Film Archive with Low Visibility on May 14
