Electric Boogaloo: The Wild, Untold Story of Cannon Films
From acclaimed cult film documentarian Mark Hartley (Not Quite Hollywood, Machete Maidens Unleashed!), Electric Boogaloo: The Wild, Untold Story of Cannon Films takes us on a hilarious thrill ride through the masterworks of Menahem Golan and Yoram Globus: two movie-obsessed immigrant cousins who gate-crashed Hollywood’s party, ran an indie studio that became the by-word for schlock, and nearly took over the industry in the process! These cousins of chaos churned out a breathtaking cavalcade of hits and misses, made movies out of posters, sold others they hadn’t even made (or written!), released a sequel before the original film, botched plots, bounced cheques and burned careers – and in doing so changed the way movies were made and marketed. This is a one-of-a-kind story about two-of-a-kind men who (for better or worse) changed film forever.
