A DOCUMENTARY FILM
FEATURING NEW MUSIC BY the morning after girls
TO PREMIERE DURING THE 2014 CBGB MUSIC AND FILM FESTIVAL
“To trust someone is to allow them to be everything they are”
The documentary is a collaboration between award-winning director, David Hilbert (Ikland), and the neo-psychedelic outfit, the morning after girls. Part narrative and part existential road picture, the film follows the U.S. tour of the band in support of their recent LP, alone.
In the words of Hypnagogia Films: “the morning after girls survived break-ups, break-downs, departures, arrivals and deportations. When the smoke cleared, they toured North America – playing music to gather people together. The ensuing miles would be their greatest test. As individuals and as a band, they found themselves on the wrong side of the law, the wrong side of the clock, and the wrong side of the wheel..”
