TWO IDIOTS AND A TIN WHISTLE
Two Idiots and a Tin Whistle follows a musical talent quest in rural New Zealand where talented (and some not so talented) musicians compete for a scholarship to the prestigious Elmville Music Academy in London. This hilarious and heartwarming mockumentary follows two warring recorder players - Giovani (aka God’s gift to music) and Freddie (a rockstar wannabe). As well as Belle (Giovani’s biggest fan), Cledius (a goat loving farmer, who plays the banjo), and Alex (a piano player who has her EYE on the prize).
The acts are put through a bootcamp, a performance at the local pub, and a final performance judged by Twitch sensation BlameTheRobot, Kiwi comedy sensation Karen O’Leary, and journalist Eli Hill.
This is the first feature film from The Tin Whistle Collective, and is actually what brought the collective together in the first place, with the preceding short films being made while this was in post production.
This is homegrown comedy cinema with a wide appeal, and characters that have been plucked out of smalltown New Zealand that you'll either love, or love to hate.
