Brooklyn Film Festival Exclusive: Take Out Your Super 8 With This Clip From 'Abby Singer/Songwriter'

As we learned earlier this year in Noah Baumbach‘s “While We’re Young,” middle-age brings with it a different kind of growing up.

Starring Jamie Block, Stephen Gurewitz, Sophie Block, Johanna Block, Jessica Caldwell, David Malinsky, Jennifer Prediger, and Josephine Decker, with Turkel himself also taking a lead role, the story blends documentary and fiction and follows Onur a middle-aged filmmaker newly arrived to Brooklyn, who convinces former indie rock star Jamie to fund a series of music videos for what will be his musical comeback. But as you can see in the clip, it’s not the most organized operation.

“Abby Singer/Songwriter” has its first screening at the festival on Wednesday, June 3rd. Get more details here and watch below.
