When Pigs Fly
Directed by Sara Driver • 1993 • Germany, United States
Starring Alfred Molina, Marianne Faithfull, Rachael Bella
A down-and-out jazz musician (Alfred Molina) is launched on a road to redemption when he comes into possession of a rocking chair haunted by two benign ghosts: a formidable middle-aged woman (Marianne Faithfull) and a precocious young girl (Rachael Bella), each of whom died in the chair decades apart. Full of surrealist flights of fancy and charmingly oddball touches, Sara Driver’s second (and to date last) narrative feature is a DIY delight graced with an anthemic score by the Clash’s Joe Strummer and the dreamy cinematography of the great Robby Müller.
