The Use “On My Death bed feat. Rachel Mason” in Complicit Film – Premiering globally

Twas an honor to attend the NYC premiere of Complicit in the Human Rights Watch Film festival at the IFC.  It has been shown globally, and this week in Lincoln Center and IFC.  The original score was done by the profound musician and composer Freddie Bryant.  As soon as the film ends, our track plays during the credits, with words from Xu Lizhi and sung by Rachel Mason. A truly wonderful film.  Not just sad, but up-lifting and with some humor.  https://ff.hrw.org/film/complicit
