Philosophical insights often give way to moments of lush cinematic reverie in this breezy
narrative shot in Florida. In the midst of watching a dog (Kaji the Dog), phoning a pretty
girl (Dominique Joelle), and entertaining a neighbor (Robin Morrissey-Jones), eccentric twins
Simon and Dave (writer-director Dave Andrae) become immersed in intriguing conversations while
amusing themselves and also, to varying degrees, those around them. Colorful and at times
humorous, The Plants Are Listening weaves together a unique array of artistic influences
that's oddly harmonious. Features original music by New Zealand singer-songwriter Robert Scott
(of The Bats and The Clean), Vicekopf (a.k.a. Gregory Whitehead), and People's Palms.
