Run Time: 105 Minutes
Fathom Events and GKIDS bring, MFKZ, the love-child of French comic artist Guillaume “Run” Renard and ultra-hip Japanese animation house Studio 4°C (Tekkonkinkreet, Genius Party and Mind Game), comes to select movie theatres for an exclusive premiere event on October 11 and 16. This dark but stunningly animated sci-fi vision mélange of anime, film noir, and Lucha Libre, centers on young Angelino and his skull-and-flame pal Vinny. The two live in a seedy tenement in Dark Meat City (DMC), an L.A.-inspired dystopian metropolis – a burnt-out, gang-and-cockroach-ridden, neo-urban hell. Following a scooter accident Angelino starts experiencing migraines, strange hallucinations and fits of rage-inspired superpowers. Slowly awakens to the truth of his origins: he is half human and half Macho, a supernatural alien race that is bent on taking over the planet.
