Mad Tiger is a feature length documentary that I co-directed with Jonathan Yi. It's about two Japanese best friends that spent the last fifteen years traveling the United States in their performance art punk band called Peelander-Z. When one of them decides to quit, they face much deeper challenges than expected. The film is being distributed worldwide by Film Movement.
Mad Tiger screened theatrically in more than fifty cities across the world with sold out screenings in New York City at the IFC Center, the Alamo Drafthouse in Austin, Philadelphia, and several others. The film won an award for The Best Story at the Solo Positvo Film Festival in Opatija, Croatia. We have received tons of great press including Rolling Stone Magazine, The Hollywood Reporter, and New York Times. Dozens of other newspapers and blogs have given the film amazing coverage. Critics have been saying, "It's so good, I can't wait to see it again." - Steve Kopian, and "a must see documentary...an intoxicating mixture of audacious rock, humor, and tragedy." - Sean Mulvihill.
Mad Tiger is edited by Hisayo Kushida and produced by Josh Koury. The film is available on Netflix, iTunes, Amazon, Google Play, and you can purchase DVDs on the website. The Mad Tiger Original Motion Picture Soundtrack was composed by Daniel Salo and Joy Wants Eternity. It is available now on a vinyl picture disc as well as on iTunes.
