SYNOPSIS:
A film by Stephen Blauweiss, written and performed by Mik & Gilles.

The elusive humorists Mikhail Horowitz and Gilles Malkine present the breakthrough play of Samuel Beckett, as it might be performed by a hapless pair of academic rappers. The entire three-hour play is condensed into four minutes of nonstop hip-hop, with no intermission.

BIO:
Stephen Blauweiss is an independent filmmaker and graphic designer. He is currently executive producer of BigGreenTV: An Environmental News Program, and also produces short films on Chronogram magazine's cover artists. His film, Math: Adds Up To More Than You Think, aired on PBS station WMHT TV. He has produced two independent features, and has produced and directed numerous documentaries on New York-based artists, including Pop Artist Robert Indiana. His film on artist Joan Steiner and her Look-Alikes screened at Mass MoCA in 2009-10 and at the New York State Museum as part of a solo exhibition of Ms. Steiner's work in 2007-08. Other documentaries of Mr. Blauweiss' have screened in the US, Europe and Canada.

Horowitz and Malkine have been performing their literary lampoons (hip-hop, blues, and pop versions of the classics), political satire, and parodic updates of the American folk and roots catalogue since 1989, at venues ranging from festivals, theater, clubs, colleges, and correctional facilities to all-night laundromats and subterranean hay-bale mazes. They've worked with and/or opened shows for Kinky Friedman, Peter "P.D.Q. Bach" Schickele, Ed Sanders (The Fugs), Jim Hightower, and Jay Ungar and Molly Mason, among many others.
