Set against the backdrop of a fading, post-industrial London, Ontario, an uncelebrated underclass of Do-It-Yourself musicians stare down a bleak  future while searching for meaning in their community. Revelations and catharsis for their powerful histories are revealed only in an underground venue circuit of dimly lit basements, sleazy apartments, and empty art galleries as they continue to go virtually unnoticed by a placid, indifferent city. Et Tu, Dude? serves as an intimate documentation of small-town Canadian musicians screaming unheard into the void.

Director’s Statement
Shot primarily over the course of a year, Et Tu, Dude? documents the lives of unappreciated musicians running an underground venue circuit in the fading, post-industrial Canadian city of London, Ontario. Providing a genuine sense of intimacy and a collection of music that soundtracks the city’s underclass, the film is as much a music documentary as it is a sociological lens into the lives of a generation facing disparity and uncertainty while navigating towards the future. Et Tu Dude? showcases the brash, outspoken art of a community historically left screaming into the void.
