FICTION & OTHER REALITIES
Singer-songwriter Big Phony makes his directorial debut with this intimate, semi-biographical musical drama. Bobby, a struggling Korean American singer-songwriter, is suddenly given an opportunity to be a roadie for his best friend’s band on a world tour. Arriving in Seoul, a “land where everyone looks like him,” he ditches the band and searches for meaning in his life.
TOKYO BEATS SHORTS
SUN MAY 13 / NEW PEOPLE CINEMA / 9:15PM
