A meditation on fame, funeral parties, genius, and the afterlife, the title refers to “The 27 Club,” which includes the likes of Kurt Cobain, Janis Joplin, Jim Morrison, Jimi Hendrix, and Amy Winehouse. The term refers to a group of artists and musicians who all died at the age of 27, often as a result of drug and alcohol abuse, suicide, accident, or under other nefarious circumstances.“In our self-made myth, a few of the famed (and ridiculous) 27ers, together, serve us as tour guides into an unknowable realm, forever peering into the conundrum that charms and terrifies us all.” Here we see them as “they are captured together on the near bank of the River Styx, so to speak, waiting for others to show up.” (Whit McLaughlin, Director’s Note, May 2014)
