An aspiring quantum physicist turned to filmmaking, and made a western. "Quantum Cowboys" takes place in a dozen different universes, and employs live action, hand-drawn animation, paper cutouts, and oil paintings. It feels like a surrealist collage has come to life. It's among the movies featured at the Denver Film Festival. University of Colorado film professor Geoff Marslett is the filmmaker.
