“Frontier<" is the first film ever made in the Bulbovian language. Directed by siblings David and Nathan Zellner (who began their film careers as extras in Pasolini's "Salo<"), "Frontier<" is based on the surrealist novel "Froktog' by famed author Mulnar Typsthat. The film is an epic saga set against the aftermath of the Klornsthog Revolution. Two members of the Expansionist Research Corps embark on a journey to civilize the most uncharted of territories.

The film's running time is 84 minutes; it is not rated and comes in Bulbovian with English Subtitles. Ligeia
