About Rock That Uke:

A funky, curiously philosophical cinematic love poem that examines the near mystical allure of the four-stringed underdog of the musical world and the recent surge of alternative, post-punk musicians on the American mainland who have taken up the instrument, and have incorporated the ukulele not just into their raucous and irreverent original compositions, but into a counter cultural, post-punk ethos. With introductory narration by Academy Award winner Holly Hunter. Featuring Carmaig de Forest, Songs From a Random House, Janet Klein, Ukefink, Robert Armstrong, Travis Harrelson, Oliver Brown (No Kill I: The Next Generation), Heinous Rynes, Uke Til U Puke, The Haoles, Williwaw, Frank Novicki, Robert Wheeler, King Kukulele, Pineapple Princess, The Rumble Pups, and Ian Whitcomb!

Directed by William Preston Robertson, who has also lent his voice to numerous Coen Brothers films and authored the definitive book on the Coen Brothers, "The Big Lebowski: The Making of a Coen Brothers Film!"
