FILMMAKER Q&A!

Ultraviolent Mutafukaz is the love-child of French comic artist Guillaume “Run” Renard and ultra-hip Japanese animation house, Studio 4°C, creators of Tekkonkinkreet, Genius Party and Mind Game. The Tekkonkinkreet dream team of Shoujirou Nishimi and art director Shinji Kimura reunite to bring to life a dark but stunningly animated sci-fi vision that mixes anime, film noir, Lucha Libre, and gang culture in an orgy of first-person shooter mayhem. The film centers on young Angelino and his skull-and-flame pal Vinny, who live in a seedy tenement in the LA-inspired metropolis of Dark Meat City – a burnt-out, gang and cockroach-ridden picture of a neo-urban hell that makes Blade Runner’s LA seem like The Brady Bunch. Following a scooter accident Angelino starts experiencing migraines and strange hallucinations, as well as fits of rage-inspired superpowers, as he begins to awaken to the truth of his origins: he is half human and half Macho, a supernatural alien race that is slowly taking over the planet.
