Sequel to be released later this year

May 26, 2015

If you have ever been involved in completing or supervising a PhD (and if you are on this website then there is a good chance that you have), there is a movie coming out this Autumn that could be right up your street.

Piled Higher and Deeper: Still in Grad School is the sequel to the first film adaptation of the popular comic strip Piled Higher and Deeper, created by cartoonist Jorge Cham.

Filmed on location at the top-ranking California Institute of Technology, the new film takes a humorous look at the world of academia through the eyes of four grad students, and features real academics in many of the roles. It was funded in large part by scholars and researchers through a successful Kickstarter campaign.
