A question and answer bookend the film: “Life was given to us a billion years ago. What have we done with it?” followed by “Life was given to us a billion years ago. Now you know what to do with it.” But along the way, it tailspins into absurdity and misanthropy, reducing mankind to an animalistic species scrambling with its head chopped off.

A man dying of syphilis is caught in the delusion that he lives in the 1800s. A folk singer from the 1950s vanishes one day leaving only her music behind. These stories and more will make up the productions of the second annual VoxFest this weekend.
Cinematic adaptations of musicals face an inherent problem. Musicals are both more alive, and more importantly, theatrical than film, which creates a surreal universe in which flashy, spontaneous song-and-dance routines are permitted and logical.
