"Eccentric Eclectic" is a documentary about creative freedom and the love of music in all its forms. In a collection of comical and musical vignettes the film explores a very special place - the Electric Eclectics festival of experimental music and sound art. Kind of like if Burning Man and Woodstock had a provincial Canadian kid - this would be it. Situated upon the hills of the Funny Farm, this word of mouth festival is run by renown sound artist Gordon Monahan and musician Chris Worden. Its space is uniquely transformed by installation artist and collector Laura Kikauka. The film follows musicians, artists and art lovers from Canada and USA who share with us their art and passions. It's Nika Belianina's first feature.
