MAD TIGER theatrical run begins April 8th in L.A. and May 6th in NY; national roll-out to follow

Mad Tiger
Directed by Jonathan Yi and Michael Haertlein
USA and Japan, 2015, 82 minutes

Opening theatrically in Los Angeles on April 8 (Downtown Independent)
and in New York on May 6 (IFC Center) with a national release to follow

Mad Tiger follows the relationship of two Japanese men, Yellow and Red, who have been best friends, band mates and business partners 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.

PEELANDER-Z will be touring across the US in Spring 2016 timed to the film’s release.
