mr. sadman, directed by patrick epino (with music from goh nakamura)

Goh Nakamura tells me about some music he recently worked on for the indie film Mr. Sadman, directed by Patrick Epino. Goh was commissioned to write a song for a scene based on the "Sound of Silence" sequence in The Graduate. The film is a dark comedy:
In 1990, before the First Gulf War, Mounir, an impressionable and sheltered Saddam Hussein body-double, loses his job and moves to Los Angeles in search of a new start. But once the real Saddam invades Kuwait and makes international headlines, Mounir learns the truth about the Iraqi dictator and vows to shed his Saddam persona forever. Unfortunately, he doesn't know how to be anyone else.
Mr. Sadman will be doing a week-long theatrical run, November 20-26 at the Downtown Independent Theater in Los Angeles. To celebrate, they're throwing an opening night screening party on Friday, November 20 with a reception and live music from Goh:
