Synopsis

The iconic comic book series created in 2008 by Run (aka Guillaume Renard), which released its final chapter in 2015, as well as the Sundance 2003 nominated animated short, are the antecedents to this triply, mind-blowing animated feature film, MUTAFUKAZ!

After a scooter accident provoked by a mysterious woman’s vision, Angelino, a deadbeat like thousands of others in Dark Meat City, starts getting violent migraines that are accompanied by strange hallucinations. Along with his good buddy Vinz, he tries to figure out what’s happening to him while threatening “men in black” seem determined to catch him.

After a painstaking creative process that took over seven years of back-and-forth between Tokyo, Los Angeles and Northern France, the sleazy urban style of MUTAFUKAZ has finally hit the big screen! Teamed up with co-director Shojiro Nishimi (BATMAN: GOTHAM KNIGHT, MIND GAME) and produced by Ankama and the talented STUDIO4°C (TEKKONKINKREET, MIND GAME) Guillaume Renard rose to the challenge of transposing the unusual style of his comic books to the screen and the result is sure to attract old fans and convert new fans into this French/US/Japanese/Reggaeton amalgam of a film.
