“ It’s guerrilla film making at its craziest, bringing some of the brightest talents of modern Japanese cinema together to create something highly unique.”
-Screen Anarchy

We’re opening the 2023 Pittsburgh Japanese Film Festival with this wildly fun, comic-book style cult classic. A violent, guitar-playing, electrically charged boxer faces off against an electronic wizard half-merged with a metallic Buddha…. which is pretty much all you need to know!
