Sent from planet Hondo to destroy the human race, General Trius, the most decorated soldier in the Hondorian army, has a change of heart when he hears music for the very first time. Taking on the alias “Bill,” he settles down in Brooklyn where he starts a family and a one-man bluegrass act, adopting Earth as his new home. When an assassin from Hondo comes to kill Trius, the two quickly bond over the power of music and form “Future Folk” — a badass bluegrass duo that rocks the house every night and fights to save the fate of both planets. Part sci-fi comedy/part concert film, The History of Future Folk is full of great charm, originality, and fantastic music. A FilmBuff Presentation.

Critics Consensus: High on quirky smarts and low on splashy special effects, The History of Future Folk is an unusual -- and unusually fun -- slice of sci-fi.


Quirky indie sci-fi film has positive messages about music.
