The Independents
USA, 2018, 97 min., Color
THE INDEPENDENTS is musical comedy and drama about three struggling solo-artists who collide at the same “crossroads” and discover harmony. Thus is born “RGB” (at least until they come up with a better band name) and what follows is their roller-coaster-ride journey across America for one last high-stakes shot at musical glory. Starring real-life bandmates of folk-rock trio THE SWEET REMAINS (30+million Spotify plays). Special band performance after the screening on the South Alley Stage in front of the Magnolia theater.
