WE ARE LITTLE ZOMBIES
When four young orphans—Hikari, Ikuko, Ishi, and Takemura—first meet, their parents’ bodies are being turned into dust, like fine Parmesan atop a plate of spaghetti Bolognese, and yet none of them can shed a tear. They are like zombies; devoid of all emotion. With no family, no future, no dreams, and no way to move forward, the young teens decide that the first level of this new existence involves salvaging a gaming console, an old electric bass, and a charred wok from their former homes—just enough to start a band-and then conquer the world. Tragedy, comedy, music, social criticism, and teenage angst are all subsumed in this eccentric cinematic tsunami.
ALL I CAN SAY FILM EXTENDED til JULY 31st!
You have a few more days to catch and help support Daddy Kool Records!

All I Can Say
Documentary, 102 minutes, World Premiere : 2019 Tribeca Film Festival
Directed by DANNY CLINCH, TARYN GOULD, COLLEEN HENNESSY, and SHANNON HOON
Shannon Hoon, lead singer of the rock band Blind Melon, filmed himself from 1990-95 with a Hi8 video camera, recording up until a few hours before his sudden death at the age of 28. His camera was a diary and his closest confidant. In the hundreds of hours of footage, Hoon meticulously documented his life – his family, his creative process, his television, his band’s rise to fame and his struggle with addiction. He filmed his daughter’s birth, and archived the politics and culture of the 90’s, an era right before the internet changed the world. Created with his own footage, voice and music, this intimate autobiography is a prescient exploration of experience and memory in the age of video. It is also Shannon Hoon’s last work, completed 23 years after his death.
Both films can be watched on your desktop, tablet, smartphone as well as on any devices outfitted with Chromecast or Airplay. There are no native apps for smart TVs, Roku, Amazon Fire Stick, or Apple TV.
