Daylight Savings

In Daylight Savings, indie musician Goh Nakamura plays “himself,” at the threshold of indie-music success—but then he’s hit with a breakup. Musician Yea-Ming Chen, also playing “herself,” is his next crush, setting in motion a road trip that ponders both the awkwardness of relationships and the strange nature of being a performing artist, whose persona tends to become oneself. As in many indie films, the tone of the movie isn’t loud, but contemplative, like the personality of Nakamura, allowing the film to really delve into the personality of him and other characters, even against the gaudy backdrop of Las Vegas. The film premiered at SXSW in Austin earlier this year and received much of its funding through a Kickstarter campaign. Director Dave Boyle will be in attendance at the screening, and there will be a brief live performance. Daylight Savings follows on the heels of Boyle’s 2011 SXSW success Surrogate Valentine.
