All My Friends are Funeral Singers

All My Friends are Funeral Singers

Chicago-based Califone provide the interactive, live soundtrack for this special presentation of bandleader Tim Rutili’s debut feature-length film All My Friends Are Funeral Singers. Like the seemingly benevolent ghosts inhabiting a rickety house in the film, Rutili and his bandmates inhabit two worlds for this program: on the silver screen and on the theater stage. After the screening/performance, Califone will launch into a straightforward musical set not to be missed. (2009, 90 min., Dir: Tim Rutili)
