"When Claire, a priest, survives a massacre she sets out on a quest to answer the most
difficult question of all—‘why?’ It’s a journey that takes her to the edge of
reason, science, politics and faith."
Bellissimo ...The Sisters of Invention screen in Italy
Continuing their international success, The Sisters' have extended their reach all their way to Italy ... yes Italy! The film-clip to the debut single This isn't Disneyland  has been selected to be part of the Soundies section of the See You Sound International Music Film Festival held in Turin, Italy from February 25 to 28, 2016.
“Part parody, part rock’n’roll edge, the music video subverts the idea of the ‘perfect princess’. It’s unexpected and surreal, and it puts disability voices and faces firmly in the
pop-culture landscape...”
