Bob Byington’s latest hangdog comedy, starring Jason Schwartzman and his trusty sidekick, Arrow. Part of Rooftop Films' SXSW Focus.


THE FILMS

7 Chinese Brothers (Bob Byington | USA | 76 min.)
Jason Schwartzman stars as Larry who, along with his trusty sidekick (Schwartzman's real-life French Bulldog, Arrow), goes through life as a misanthropic outcast, unable to retain employment or stable relationships - especially with his grandma, played with sharp timing and wit by Academy Award®-winner Olympia Dukakis. Landing at a Quick Lube, Larry finds himself falling for his new boss Lupe (Eleanore Pienta). Part absurdist comedy and part character portrait, 7 Chinese Brothers is a unique tale of people stuck within the confines of normalcy while they represent anything but. Co-starring Tunde Adebimpe (TV on the Radio) and Alex Karpovsky from Girls.
