HISTORY OF FUTURE FOLK – Screening & Live Performance!

LIVE Q&A + PERFORMANCE FOLLOWING THE SCREENING!  “Proudly low budget and just as proudly absurd, this comedy directed by J. Anderson Mitchell and Jeremy Kipp Walker tells what happened when General Trius (Nils d’Aulaire), whose planet was on course for a catastrophic collision with a comet, came to Earth looking for a new home for his people.

His mission was to kill earthlings and take over the planet, but when he heard music, something unknown on Hondo, he became an earthling-lover, as well as a banjo player. Kevin (Jay Klaitz), sent from Hondo to take over the general’s mission, is equally captivated by music, and he and the general, performing in their spacesuits, win over the New York club scene and save both planets.

All this is presented in flashback, a story General Trius tells to his young Earth-born daughter (Onata Aprile) at bedtime. It may not make much sense in a brief plot summary, but it makes perfect, daffy sense on the screen.” – Neil Genzlinger, New York Times
