The film - 36 Husbands - will be screened at Nethercote Hall.

On Wednesday night, February 19 Nethercote Music Factory presents Bright Blue Gorilla Concert and associated movie 36 Husbands at the Nethercote Hall.

Bright Blue Gorilla are filmmakers and musicians who've been travelling the world since 1990 playing concerts and presenting screenings. The evening will include a concert and screening of their new film 36 Husbands, with a Q&A to follow.

The film, the band's seventh, was shot in Australia, Berlin, Frankfurt, Dortmund, Paris and LA.

It's an uplifting, musical, mystical, kung-fu spy comedy starring three powerful women - and a bunch of husbands! Lots of music in it, a super fun film. Krista, top spy and Kung Fu master, has extraordinary powers and she puts them in action on her quest to slow down the march towards World War III.

Together with her Kung Fu disciples, Gina and Nola, (and Frankie, a spy on-loan from MI6) they fight and love their way across the world leaving a trail of broken hearts and sabotaged plans.

All the spies and evil-doers are tuning into the Bright Blue Gorilla TV show. Why do they watch? Is it the music, is it the comedy?

This uplifting independent film is quirky, clever, fun, and full of surprises.

After seven feature films, a dozen CDs, and 29 years on the road, award-winning filmmakers and musicians Bright Blue Gorilla have plenty of entertaining stories to share.

Producer Robyn Rosenkrantz and director Michael Glover have been charming audiences around the world since 1990 when they quit their LA jobs, sold everything they had (except their guitars) and bought one-way tickets to Europe.

They've been performing and travelling ever since. Their movies have been on Netflix and are currently available worldwide on iTunes, Amazon, and other platforms.

The Nethercote Music Factory recently held an extremely well attended Bushfire Relief Blackboard on Saturday, February 8 where the massive audience was treated to a plethora of musical genres from classical violin and piano to subtle blues, some edgy political satire and bush poetry, from performer ages ranging from 10 to 80.

Funds from the evening reached $1000 which will all be donated to the Nethercote RFS. Many thanks to all who gave so generously and to the performers who made the night a huge success.
