“You must embrace the avante garde. It [All My Friends are Funeral Singers] certainly embodies art house. It’s the kind of film that bears repeat viewings” – StarkInsider
Starring Angela Bettis (Girl Interrupted, Carrie, May) as Zel.
Zel is a fortune teller. She works out of her century-old house removing clients’ aches and pains, advising gamblers, and channeling cranky spirits for a quick check in with their loved ones. Zel is very good at her chosen profession, but also receives some unique assistance.
For as long as she can remember she has shared her home with a group of ghosts — a priest, a bride, a mute child, some washed up vaudevillians and a noisy, sight-impaired group of musicians, all who pass on incredible knowledge and abilities from beyond the world of the living.
All goes on at the family homestead as it has for generations, until a mysterious light appears in the woods. The ghosts suddenly realize they are trapped, and forge a rebellion, tormenting Zel with all the aggravation and insanity they can muster. And when Zel uncovers the origins of these spirits, she is forced to choose between her comfortable if strange existence and letting go of the only family she has ever known.
Featuring an original score by Calofone, All My Friends are Funeral Singers was a festival darling with appearances at Sarasota, Sundance and SXSW.
“An unqualified crowd-pleaser” – Pulse
“I can’t recommend All My Friends Are Funeral Singers enough. Between the beautiful cinematography by Darryl Miller, the outstanding performances by the film’s cast and the haunting score provided by Califone, the film is an unqualified crowd-pleaser.” – The Carrying on of a Wayward Son
“A strong optional purchase” – Video Librarian
