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.

Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: It may not make much sense in a brief plot summary, but it makes perfect, daffy sense on the screen.
Fresh: Close encounters of the charming kind infuse The History of Future Folk.
Fresh: The movie could have made its points - war is bad; music is the universal language - in half the time. But the harmonies are sweet, the acoustic picking impressive.
Fresh: A low-key sci-fi mashup that charms by focusing on character rather than grandiose special effects.
Original, funny, enjoyable
When they describe it as a movie of every genre, that is exactly what it is. It is very authentic, original, and true to itself, itself being so many things. Great music, hilarious cast. I enjoyed every minute of it
