WATCH THE TRAILER: Silver Jew, Sunday and Monday at the Independent Film Festival of Boston
Though it's not reviewed in our roundup of the Independent Film Festival of Boston, we'd like to draw your attention to Silver Jew, which is not your typical rockumentary or even your typical earnest indie-band profile. Yes, it's about the Silver Jews, who are probably worth something earnest, historical, and discographical. Someday, we're sure something like that will land in your Insound checkout cart. But this here is even stranger: director David Tully follows along as Silver Jews' reclusive leader David Berman takes his cult band on tour in Israel, in what becomes a film as much about the terrain as about the tour. Click the trailer above for a sample. Screens tonight at 10:15 pm at the Coolidge Corner Theater and Monday at 9 pm at the Somerville. Visit www.iffboston.org for more info.
