Every summer, revelers of all stripes gather at the Westifal music festival. When Irish folk band fiddler Keevey meets Roland, a self-righteous theremin player, sparks literally begin to fly. From one year to the next, their rollercoaster romance forms the backdrop of interweaving stories of Morris Dancing, didgeridoos and drumming in this comedy about a community who discover they have more in common than their taste in music.
This screening will feature an interactive theremin performance from David Worrall before the film starting at 6:00pm as well as a Welcome to Country ceremony by Dave Spencer of the American Indian Center – Chicago immediately before the film. Following the film will be a post-screening discussion featuring David Worrall and Dave Spencer on themes from the film.
Co-presented by the Australian Consulate-General in Chicago
