The Living Wake

The Film

“One of the most original American Films of the decade”
with Mike O’Connell & Jesse Eisenberg

A dark comedy set in a timeless storybook universe. Self-proclaimed artist and genius, K. Roth Binew (mike O’Conell), has one day to live.

He has enlisted his best and only friend, Mills Joaquin (Jesse Eisenberg) to take him around on a bicycle powered rickshaw.

In a final attempt to probe life’s deepest mysteries, Binew endures one ridiculous trial after the next.

He concludes his day with a final performance, his living wake.

On a makeshift stage in an open field, Binew’s friends and enemies gather to witness his madness one final time.

This cult film is like nothing you’ve seen before

"...unlike anything you will see this year!"
"One of the most original American movies of the decade"
" a Shakesperean Farce Directed by Salvidor Dali!"
