Mad Tiger

A film by: Jonathan Yi and Michael Haertlein

MAD TIGER follows the relationship of two Japanese men, Yellow and Red, who have been best friends and band mates touring the United States in a performance-art punk band called PEELANDER-Z for the last fifteen years. When Red decides to quit, their relationship is tested by life beyond the band.

MAD TIGER is a winking, heartfelt portrait of a band that not only captures the energy of their live show but also the guarded introspection and rigid method behind the day-glo stage performance madness. When the band begins to confront forces beyond their control, and members must decide to prioritize their own lives over the band’s future, MAD TIGER builds to an unexpectedly moving crescendo that forces all involved to change and grow.
