Cinematic Rock Opera, 'The Lives Of Hamilton Fish'

Jaime Alvarez

  Hamilton Fish II was a descendant of one of the most prominent families in New York State. Hamilton “Albert” Fish was a psychopath and a most notorious child murderer. They died one day apart in 1936. A newspaper editor becomes obsessed with the coincidence of their shared names after publishing their obituaries on his front page.

The Lives of Hamilton Fishis a cinematic rock opera inspired by that true story. Rachel Mason wrote, directed and stars in the film, much of it was shot on location at historic sites in the Hudson Valley.

The film won Best Picture at the 2014 New England Underground Film Festival and will be presented this Saturday March 14th at The Hudson Opera House in Hudson, NY. Rachel will perform the songs live as the film is screened.

If you can’t make it to Hudson this weekend - The Lives of Hamilton Fish is making its NY Festival Premiere at the Museum of the Moving Image on March 20 as part of Queens World Film Festival.
