Christopher Webster [Celluloid 11.21.11] music cult drama

We’ve just been sent a couple of clips from Bruno Miotto's upcoming Buddy Holly joint, The Day The Music Died. No, this isn't a traditional bio-pic but rather a more surreal film inspired by the trailblazing music and tragic end of Buddy Holly - what Miotto calls a modern-day depiction in a surreal Los Angeles.

The Day the Music Died is a surreal and metaphorical story about a young dreamer called Buddy. Buddy, 22 years old, tries to pursue his big chance of becoming a rocker in modern day Los Angeles.

Who is Buddy? Why does he look so much like Buddy Holly, the icon rocker of the 50s? Whats the connection between him and the real Buddy Holly? Is he the real one? And again, what happens when the music dies?

The Buddy Holly myth comes down to the city of dreams. The city that reflects upon young dreams, love and illusions. Buddy and Buddy Holly, two characters that strangely never seem to converge, unite at the very end.

This is a tale where something more significant than a human dies.

The Day the Music Died stars Guy Kent, Paige Segal, Anastasia Lofgren, Brian Maguire, Jon Morgan Woodward, Harold I. Gould and Mariana Campos.

It’s scheduled for release later this year, but we'll keep you posted
