I Am Not a Hipster
The popular (and free) monthly film screenings are rounding out the year in the Green Flash Tasting Room with the independent feature and Sundance Film Festival selection, I Am Not A Hipster.
About the film:
A young singer-songwriter with a growing local following wanders through his apathetic life. When his dad and three sisters show up to spread his mother's ashes, he's reminded of the part of himself he left back in Ohio and is forced to deal with the person he's become. I Am Not a Hipster, based on San Diego's indie music and art scene, features original song performances and explores what it means to be creative in the face of tragedy.
The Music in the film:
I Am Not a Hipster is a film that takes place entirely inside the world of San Diego's thriving indie music scene. Music is the backbone to this story and a large reason why the film connects with young adults of our generation. All of the songs and bands featured in the film express a unique, inventive true sample of what is happening right now in the indie music scene. Musicians featured in the film include San Diego’s own Joel P West who created a band specifically for the film – Canines, DJ – SPACEFACE whose beats were created by electronic artist Jamuel Saxon and singer Lauren Coleman.
Following the film producer Ron Najor will be taking questions from the audience about the film.
New food truck SoulCal will be serving up dinner for the evening.
