MAD TIGER

MAD TIGER


"Fantastic portrait of a band and its leader that works on so many different levels. What I love about the film is that what starts out with a look at a band changes into a look at what it takes to be in a band and how the relationships outside of the band are forced to change because of the dynamics of the band."
- Steve Kopian, Unseen Films

"10 Must-See Documentaries at DOC NYC."
- Indiewire

"The members of Peelander-Z unmask themselves for revealing new doc MAD TIGER... For close to two decades fans have known the band with their personas held firmly in place, their colorful costumes seldom removed, but the opportunity to meet Peelander-Z has finally arrived, and the line between artist and person is blurring."
- Silvas Valentino, Village Voice
