Arcade Fire’s Will Butler contributed music to Bronx Obama, a 90-minute documentary currently available via digital retailers and set to air on Showtime later this month. Here’s the description of the film:
When Louis Ortiz shaved off his goatee one day in 2008, his life changed forever. He looked in the mirror and he didn’t see himself – a middle-aged, unemployed Puerto Rican father from the Bronx. He saw the face of change, of hope … of money. Bronx Obama tells the strange and improbable tale of a Barack Obama impersonator who tries to cash in on the ‘look of a lifetime’ and chases a fevered American dream from opportunity to oblivion.
