This June we'll be screening Serbian Emir Kusturica's crooked romantic comedy "Black Cat, White Cat" opened by a live performance by the stunning brooklyn based folk orchestra "O' My Fate".
O' MY FATE
Front men Wilder Lee & Alex Genin join forces in a current incarnation of O' My Fate as they croon & two-step to everything from round-town A'cappella-gospel to Russian war ballads. They have honed a preternatural blasé style all on their own & are bonded with wild mutual interests in the arts-- both culinary & martial.

The video is part of Ben's collaboration with House Plants, a piece called 'Orbothology'.
