A bone fide classic of the video age, we’re delighted to be screening a restored print of Battletruck from the forthcoming Japanese Blu-ray release.
Somewhat of a cult classic, Battletruck features a post-World War III (known in-film as The Oil Wars) futuristic tale of collapsed governments and bankrupt countries heralding a new lawless age which somehow doesn’t feel as farfetched as it did back in 1982.
We’re joined by Harley Cokeliss in conversation with Justin Johnson on his memories of creating this cult classic on a shoestring in New Zealand.
