Brooklyn Film Festival Premiere's Musical Feature Film TOMMY BATTLES THE SILVER SEA DRAGON Saturday, June 2nd
A twisted love story and courtroom madness set to a rocking soundtrack of original songs, are just a few key ingredients in filmmaker Luke Shirock's ambitious crowd pleasing musical escapade, Tommy Battles The Silver Dragon. The film will make its East Coast Premiere at the Brooklyn Film Festival on Saturday, June 2nd at 7PM.
Tommy Battles The Silver Dragon is written, directed and stars LUKE SHIROCK (Sponge, Old Married Couple) as Tommy, and features an ensemble cast including CELINE HELD (Mouse, Caroline, Babs), DAVID ANDREW MACDONALD (Guiding Light, Person Of Interest), MICHAEL KOSTROFF (The Wire, The Blacklist, The Good Wife) and ALISON FRASER (Family Games, Hippyish, It Could Be Worse).
Tommy (LUKE SHIROCK) finds himself in a courtroom haunted by his own demons. As he wrestles with a myriad of guilt and is charged with three unspeakable crimes, we follow Tommy through the labyrinth of his memory and fantasy on a musical quest to discover the true nature of his guilt. Tommy's burden weighs heavily on his lover Carolyn (CELINE HELD), whose inescapable charm is eclipsed by his struggle to find forgiveness.
Tommy Battles the Silver Sea Dragon is the surreal musical drama of a man's struggle to overcome the guilt of his mother's death. On a quest for absolution, Tommy finds himself on trial where his confession delves into his deepest memories, but these are found to be distorted by projections of fear, desire and shame. Tommy's elaborate self-delusion weighs heavily on his girlfriend Carolyn, whose experience as a woman is overshadowed by the effects of Tommy's maternal loss. Dream and reality blur as the characters from the courtroom infiltrate his memories, dragging him back to the courtroom in a closed loop of self-blame. Can Tommy interrupt the cycle of guilt before it destroys him and THE ONE he loves?
