This film is family friendly.
"TELOS" chronicles the unorthodox life and revolutionary work of Eugene Tssui, an eccentric visionary and a maverick architect. He questions traditional building standards and put nature and the environment at the forefront of his designs long before "green" and "eco-friendly" became buzzwords. While his sustainable building principles have become a trend and a necessity, his aesthetics have yet to receive mainstream approval. Rejected by the status quo and embattled to defend his futuristic, yet naturalistic visions, Tssui finds unexpected allies in the small mountain town of Mount Shasta, California where he hopes to build his architectural fantasia.
