Movie Info

From director Jennifer DeLia and producer Julie Pacino, BILLY BATES is an absorbing portrait of a troubled artist who seeks solace in lover, Kaia (Savannah Welch), a beautiful singer. The two navigate his mind-bending reality through a cacophony of voices, music, memories, underground parties, and a psychotic break. Throughout this kaleidoscopic journey, Billy (James Wirt) creates his body of work and is coined "the Warhol of his generation." (C) Quad
