Mod Fuck Explosion

Friday, August 4 - Saturday, August 19, 2023

A lurid fever-dream riffing on arthouse pretense collided head-on with shock cinema, MOD FUCK EXPLOSION stars Amy Davis as London, a slinky blond girl in love/lust with delinquent boy par excellence M16 (played by female lead Desi del Valle), searching for her raison d’etre in a sprawling nightmare city. A coming-of-age story packaged in a sleazy exploitation wrapper, MOD FUCK EXPLOSION resonates with a strange yet wholly original existentialism. “Welcome to the shit generation,” London declares, “I am its mascot.” But for all its trouble and pain, Mod Fuck Explosion is also outrageous fun.

“A dynamic punk odyssey of a pair of innocent teens adrift in a violent urban world; Moritsugu unleashes a barrage of powerful images and hard-driving music.” – Los Angeles Times

“Fueled by an appropriately thrashy soundtrack, pic’s a guaranteed hoot for like-minded youths at midnight screenings.” – VARIETY

“MOD demands to be seen with its flash-and-trash attitude… all the ingredients of good revolutionary cinema.” – NEW YORK POST
