Local filmmaker translates prog-rock album onto the big screen with feature film, “Subterranea”

The Montana-made feature film, “Subterranea,” is being adapted from British prog-rock band IQ’s 1997 concept album of the same name. The filmmakers hope to bring the music to life on the big screen with this psychological mystery examining what it means to be human. The story follows a man who, after being held captive his whole life and never seeing the light of day or another human being, is released into society for the first time as an adult. He must learn how to live in order to survive. He sets out on a quest of revenge, searching for the man who did this to him, all the while unraveling bits and pieces from his dark past. “Subterranea” will begin production in the Missoula area in May. The filmmakers will use Montana crew, talent and service providers. Montana native Lily Gladston will play a role in the film. Visit to learn more about the film.
