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. And that’s a theme that seems to continue in Onur Turkel‘s comedy “Abby Singer/Songwriter,” and as it gears up to screen at the Brooklyn Film Festival, we have an exclusive clip from the movie.
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.
