As someone who is "schlepping" a small rock 'n' roll film festival in a less than conducive environment, I could totally relate to Tired Eyes (directed by Ryan Martin Brown). I can see the utter ridiculousness of it all...and also the utter importance of it.
"Rose, Mitch, and Trevor make up the lo-fi rock band Tired Eyes. The trio have a small gig tonight, which means schlepping gear from a cramped practice space in Brooklyn to the middle of Manhattan. Unfortunately, the city has a way of making even the simplest of tasks absurdly difficult."
'A snapshot of people you know... [it] questions the purpose of art in a way that I found very moving.'
- Antonio Mendez-Esparza, Cassavetes Award Winner
'Perfectly captures the chaos and madness of New York, and the hustle of trying to get something off the ground.'

This video shows what most, if not all, bands go through right before a gig and I think such hustles stem much of their writing.
Of course they are late and have to beg for a chance to play.
I can only imagine how long it took to set up.
Makes you wonder what kind of situation musicians go through right before and even after a show.
They are surprisingly good.
Set is done and they have to find a way back home.
Their band name is fitting after the day they just had: Tired Eyes.

My first impression was that it is relatable and peaceful. l liked that it was funny and showed what happens everyday in life when you are not organized. The music was calm yet it showed confusion. l did not like how the scenes were short and how the characters were quite insensitive to their neighbors; they simply were in their own cocoon plus they were rude. The film reminded me of some of the fun, laid back comedy movies l have watched; the characters usually are petty but fun, eg Love Rosie, it showed her love life and the effects of not telling your love before, but it ended well.
Love Kassim: Side bar, can I find this band on YouTube, check out their music or they were just actors?
ROFFEKE: They were actors 😊
