All Musicians Are Bastards (2012)

Original title: Kõik muusikud on kaabakad

Feature film | Students film | Drama Duration 86:00

Leila is a singer with an interesting voice, fascinated by surreal electronic sounds instead of conventional jazz. Unfortunately, avant garde won't pay rent so Leila gets involved in various forms of buying, selling, and offering services in the most unexpected places and situations. Self-destructive lifestyle and cruel rivarly in music business make Leila think about the line between the two different realities - the illusory ghost world and the real society where human relationships are used in order to get access into the lonely and desolate world of things, prestige and public attention.
