Rubberband is an Unlikely Instrument, A

year: 2011
director: Matt Boyd
cast: Andrea Baker, Walter Baker

A meditation on a Brooklyn family wrestling to navigate their path amidst the waning Bush years, rapid gentrification and financial upheaval. Walter Baker is an eccentric, multi-instrumentalist struggling to maintain balance between creating art alongside the daily trials of making ends meet in NY. Artistically and philosophically situated on the fringes of mainstream culture, Baker grasps to bear the roles of family man, business owner and aspiring composer. An unexpected Texas family gathering triggers deeper conflicts that find him grappling to reconcile fractured roots down South and ultimately at home.
