I know that the next six months are important for the folk rock duo Future Folk. They recently recorded their album with Grammy award-winning producer Matt Sharp, who has produced for acts such as Green Day, Semisonic, and Aimee Mann. They are hitting the road in the next few weeks for their first tour since the release of their album, kicking off in Duluth, MINN. and ending in New York City.

Can you imagine a film that incorporates elements of drama, romance, comedy, sci-fi plus lots of catchy songs... and that at the end almost everyone likes it!? It is hard to imagine, but this movie is one of the kind, and it manages to be adorable with all of the above in it! Director John Mitchell's debut has it all - aliens bent on world destruction, boy-meets girl/boy-gets-girl, action adventure, and a soundtrack which will follow you for days even if you are not a fan of that kind of music. Unique and charming, this piece of real film art will have you humming and repeating the word "Hondo" long after you've finish watching it. This film is actually setting the background story of the futuristic folk duo Future Folk, who have been performing to packed crowds in and around New York and Brooklyn for several years. Using their alien personas and building a thrilling backstory around them, the film manages to please the crowd and bewitch us all at the same time while we together follow the hilarious adventure that lives up to its tag-line: Probably the only alien-folk-duo sci-fi-action-romance-comedy ever made! I have to say that Jeremy Kipp Walker is the real star of this project together with the main protagonists. His recent producing credits include "It's Kind of a Funny Story" starring Zach Galifianakis; "Half Nelson", for which Ryan Gosling received a 2007 Best Actor Academy Award nomination; "Cold Souls" starring Paul Giamatti; baseball odyssey "Sugar"; Moroccan-based thriller "The Passage" and the deep space thriller "Europa Report". Impressive, but none of them reached the smoothness and satisfaction like his directing debut - this one The History of Future Folk. He previously co-directed the award winning short films "Super Powers" (Best Narrative Short Film Award - 2007 Tribeca Film Festival) and "Goodnight Bill" (Jury Award for Best Short Film - 2005 Austin Film Festival; Audience Award for Best Live Action Film - 2005 Palm Springs International Short Film Festival; Jury Award for Best Short Film - 2005 New Orleans Film Festival and a Best of Fest Screenplay Award - 2005 Rhode Island Film Festival). I am looking forward for the next film! If you are in a mood for a gentle and infectiously joyful family-friendly comedy about aliens who call off an invasion of Earth because they're charmed by earthlings' music, chose this one. You should be feeling invigorated after watching it. In fact, if that does not happen, please watch it again. You definitely did something wrong the first time.
