I Don’t Know When the Armageddon Is

An aural and visual treat served up by the Puccini Family. Against the ethereal beauty and serenity of summer in upstate NY, the sparring and musings of a close-knit family group becomes a stream of collective consciousness ultimately morphing into the background sound of the Universe itself as voiced by the ever-present reminder that this is not Paradise – the ubiquitous mosquito. Written by the maker’s father.
