SONGS ABOUT F*CKING
In the fall of 2021, filmmaker James Gallagher rode across the country with Marc Rebillet on his sold-out Third Dose Tour to capture what it was about the artist, showman, and robe-clad musical alchemist that brought thousands of people out of their homes for the first time.
Part hitmaker, part internet personality, Marc Rebillet is the epitome of the word artist. James Gallagher’s Tribeca 2023 doc dives into the whirlwind life and career of an unexpected creator and free-spirited entertainer. Meet the best side of the internet age.
Rebillet’s ability to improvise is infectious. The live concert footage is hypnotic. His wildly positive messages are both tongue-in-cheek and celebratory. He brings light to his followers, giving them small things to smile about in their darkest days. He is so comfortable in his weirdness that he compels you to watch and listen.
The film cuts between live concert footage, childhood home videos, and behind-the-scenes tour bus clips in 2022. While the doc feels like a party, it is also quietly an homage to Marc’s family, biological and chosen. SONGS ABOUT FUCKING has found its home at Tribeca 2023. It deserves this audience, and it deserves the largest theater possible. It is a celebration of inclusion, creativity, life, and love.
Directed and Written by James Gallagher (feature film directorial debut)
Produced by: Gus Deardoff (Sorry to Bother You), Lizzie Shapiro (Shiva Baby), and Andrew Swett
ABOUT MARC REBILLET:
Marc “Loop Daddy” Rebillet is an enigmatic, robe-clad performer who’s raucous, sold-out shows are almost completely improvised. Known for his unique combination of soul, R&B, and house beats blended with jokes about life’s everyday experiences. Inspired by artists like Reggie Watts and using his background in acting and piano, Rebillet brings audiences into every part of his performances and remains true to his independent roots. Rebillet’s superpower is musical improvisation and deeply connecting with his audience in an absurd and often vulgar yet touching way.
Rebillet continues to tour globally and perform at festivals (including his recent Coachella debut on the iconic Main Stage). Check out some of Rebillet’s work on his YouTube.
