Aaron Aites, also the singer-songwriter behind the band Iran, died on April 28, 2016, after battling cancer.
His band released three albums: S/T (1998), The Moon Boys (2002) and Dissolver (2008). Pitchfork described his self-titled album, IRAN, as “unabashed excellence.”
“It was the most unbelievable privilege to share my life and work with Aaron for over 15 years. He never looked away from the darkness, but illuminated it so the rest of us could find our way a little more easily. Aaron’s passion for great and often obscure music, film, and art was contagious, and the world is a better place for his having been with us. Though he had much more to offer, he continues to shine a light in the darkness through his tremendous legacy of music, films, and the love he left behind.” – Life and filmmaking partner Audrey EwellEwell is fundraising for finishing costs to support the film’s release: igg.me/at/MemoryBoxFilm
