Sundance 2010: ALL MY FRIENDS ARE FUNERAL SINGERS acquired by IndiePix
As Sundance begins to pick up speed, the acquisition announcements are going to start coming fast and furious. Here's one of the most interesting ones from the second day of the 'dance. Our buddies over at IndiePix Films have just announced their acquisition of distribution rights to ALL MY FRIENDS ARE FUNERAL SINGERS, the film directed by Tim Rutili and executive produced by Glen Sherman. IndiePix will manage the distribution of the film in theatrical, DVD, digital, and new media markets worldwide.
The film follows Zel, a fortune teller, who has some unlikely housemates - a pack of ghosts who aid in her work. They "help her remove clients’ aches and pains, advise gamblers, and channel cranky spirits to check on their loved ones." But everything changes when "a mysterious light appears in the woods and the ghosts realize they are trapped." Zel has to get honest with herself about her ghostly "family," including just where they're from and how she might have to let them go. The film is heavily influenced by a soundtrack provided by Chicago band Califone.
