Sorry. This film is not currently available.

Music video director Steven Hanft makes his feature debut with the digital video project SOUTHLANDER, an absurd independent film starring various beloved indie pop musicians. Rory Cochrane stars as Chance, a musician who loses his extremely rare magical synthesizer, a white 1969 MoleTron keyboard. He looks for it wandering around a de-glamorized Southern California with pal, Rossangeles. They find clues in the local classified newspaper called the Southlander, which leads them to meet some interesting folks. Their adventures eventually take them to the home of former funk legend-turned-tennis player Mother Child and his blonde girlfriend, Snowbunny. Beth Orton stars as Chance's love interest, Rocket, the leader of the band Future Pigeon. Beck plays Bek, his younger pre-stardom self; back when he was into drugs and recording music by himself in a shack. Also starring Ione Skye, Hank Williams III, Richard Edson, and Elliott Smith.
