Future Folk is an acoustic-music duo consisting of General Trius and the Mighty Kevin from a distant planet in outer space called Hondo. They currently live and perform on Earth and the bands escapades are the subject of a feature film, “The History of Future Folk”.
Hondo! (that’s how they say ‘hello’ on their home planet) The story goes that Trius joined the Hondonian Army at a young age and quickly rose to the rank of General. During his military career, circumstances conspired to see him stranded on Earth. Soon after landing,Trius heard music for the first time and immediately fell in love. Soon after he started playing the banjo and decided that he liked it quite fine here on Earth. Kevin was sent to Earth to complete Trius’ mission but befell to the lures of music and woman, just like Trius.
Since they relocated to Earth, the two have taken up music as their main vocation, playing at venues in and around New York City for over six years. In addition to attracting the attention of the police, their acoustical antics became worth of a this feature indie musical comedy.
The History of Future Folk, a quirky sci-fi indie comedy by co-directors — New York based Jeremy Kipp Walker (It’s Kind of a Funny Story starring Zach Galifianakis and Half Nelson starring Ryan Gosling) and J. Anderson Mitchell — is this year’s Centerpiece film for TFMF 12. The southwest premiere tells a tale of two men from outer space (the planet Hondo! to be exact) and the acoustical antics which led to comic mayhem and the eventual salvation of the human race.
