2045 CARNIVAL FOLKLORE

In 2045, after a nuclear disaster, Japan has collapsed and in a surviving city, where the sound dominates, the big brother Aniki has started a dictatorship in which he controls the population through fear and sexual impulses.

One day the secret agent, Sun Ra, sneaks into the system to sabotage it, but he needs a band…
An impulsive anarchist saga, between science-fiction and a musical with a Japa-noise taste, with performances by TheFukushima Mutant Gandja Turtles inspired by the famous Tohiji Mikava and his Incapacitants. A black and white movie to refresh the memory on the disaster of Fukushima which goes from the Alphaville: une étrange aventure de Lemmy Caution by J.L.Godard to Tetsuo by S.Tsukamoto. A cult for who loves a revolution with hitting feedbacks.
