MN PREMIERE of "7 Chinese Brothers"

  • Trylon microcinema 3258 Minneapolis Ave Minneapolis, MN, 55406 United States (map)

Sound Unseen is proud to present the MN PREMIERE of the "7 Chinese Brothers" by director Bob Byington.

Date: Wed. September 9, 2015
Time: 7pm
Venue: Trylon microcinema
Price: $10

Bob Byington (Somebody Up There Likes Me) teams up with Jason Schwartzman (Rushmore, Listen Up Philip) for this observational, quirky comedy. Schwartzman stars as Larry who, along with his trusty sidekick French bulldog Arrow (Schwartzman's real-life dog), goes through life as a misanthropic outcast who fails to retain employment or stable relationships - especially with his grandma, played with sharp timing and wit by Academy Award®-winner Olympia Dukakis (Moonstruck). After getting fired from his last job, Larry talks himself into working as an auto-mechanic and finds himself falling for his new boss. Part absurdist comedy and part character portrait, 7 Chinese Brothers is a unique tale about people stuck within the confines of normalcy while they represent anything but. Co-starring Tunde Adebimpe from the band TV on the Radio and Alex Karpovsky from “Girls.”

Dir. Bob Byington, 2015, USA, 76 min., HD
