Fred "Tate" Billings is an outsider artist and post-psychedelic philosopher who spends his days creating playful works about hidden dimensions and galactic time travel.


As he journeys  from his ramshackle house in the Catskills to New York City, the Maine coast, and the battlefields of Gettysburg, Tate excavates personal and  historic mysteries,  both real and imagined.

The filmmaker Michel Negroponte, inspired by Tate's distinctive collage artworks, has created a layered portrait. “This is a collage film about a collage artist,” Negroponte has explained. “I’ve combined Tate’s unique philosophical point of view, the bizarre knick-knacks that threaten to overtake his home, and his inventions to create a parallel cinematic universe.” 

 

In the end, Tate  boldly hurtles towards an unexpected destination . . . a place where no man has gone before.
