All Singing, All Dancing

All Singing, All Dancing is a new film musical that uses an experimental format to touch on themes such as depression, escapism and sustainability, while taking cue from the escapist and morale boosting nature of Classic Hollywood musicals.

As the problems of the world become more pressing, a young woman has turned to watching old Hollywood musicals.

Sitting in her windowsill, staring at the night sky, she takes cue from her old Hollywood heroes and softly and longingly sings of a life in the countryside, letting her romantic ideas run free.

No faster way to escape reality than by dreaming.
