Director Scott Perry follows singer-songwriter Omar Apollo in the days leading up to the biggest milestone of his career — playing a sold out show at the iconic venue, The Metro, where he and his bandmates grew up watching their favourite acts. Shot on 16mm with no interviews or voiceover, “Years To Come” is meant to feel more like a scripted short than a documentary film.
“Omar Apollo is the youngest of three siblings born to Mexican parents. His parents crossed the border in the 1990’s and they settled in the mostly white town of Hobart, Indiana. One of Omar’s main motivations in his career is representation. He realizes the importance of being a role model to all other Mexican kids who dream of being a musician.”
