[event] Ignore All Detour Signs // 24th Sept 2011 @ Sinema Old School

Ignore All Detour Signs
by Helmi Ali (Singapore)
Rated PG / 55mins

Sinema, 11B Mount Sophia, Old School, 24th Sept 2011, 9.30pm

Like any other up-and-coming band, local post-rock outfit I Am David Sparkle were psyched at being invited to the world-famous South by Southwest Festival (SXSW) in March 2009. But getting their act to their biggest stage yet with a lack of money and many an obstacle promised to knock the stuffing out of them, constantly telling them to take a detour. This local documentary chronicles their journey of passion, belief, and pulling out all the stops - from a fundraising gig to selling T-shirts - to raise sufficient funds in two months. Their spirit is admirable and this documentary... well, its really quite sparkling.

Head to for more information.

There will also be a post-screening Q&A session with director Helmi Ali and I Am David Sparkle.
