Mt. Lebanon Alumnus Creates Movies In An Unconventional, Avant-Garde Style

Like many aspiring filmmakers, Caleb Foss once made a zombie movie. He was maybe 13 or 14 years old. That's about as mainstream as he's been willing to go.

"When you tell people you're studying [filmmaking in college], sometimes they get excited. It's a glamorous thing," he said. "If you tell them it's 'experimental' film, they say 'Well, what are you going to do with that?'" he added, laughing.

Mr. Foss recently completed his first year at The Conservatory of Theatre Arts and Film at Purchase College, which is part of the State University of New York system. He will present a talk and short screening on experimental film at 7 p.m. Monday at the Mt. Lebanon Public Library.
