North American Premiere
Co-presented with the New York Asian Film Festival
It’s 2012, and a colossal meteor is set to smash into earth within hours, causing gigantic tidal waves that will destroy humanity. People have fled Tokyo for higher ground except for two oblivious music geeks in a record shop, who are listening to a song by an underground Japanese punk band from 1975. What follows is the outrageous story of the song’s origin and how it caused a miraculous chain of events that will eventually save the world from destruction.
2009, 112 min., 35mm. Directed by Yoshihiro Nakamura. With Atsushi Ito, Kengo Takara, Mikako Tabe and Nao Omori.
