This lo-fi sci-fi film tells the (possibly exaggerated) true story of two aliens who are sent to Earth to exterminate the human race, only to abandon their missions after discovering Earth’s incredible invention of something called “music.” Future Folk comes in peace as the universe’s first Hondonian bluegrass duo, but their days of playing in a small Brooklyn bar come to a halt when their fellow Hondonians return. It’s up to our bumbling heroes to prevent an intergalactic takeover in this quirky and absurd tale with an outstanding soundtrack that will win you over with its warmth, charm and outright hilarity.
