Turbo Kid at Sundance: BMX and 80s Nostalgia

A post-apocalypse, BMX movie. Yes! And it’s an official Sundance Selection.

It’s 1997. In a ruined post-apocalyptic world, the orphaned Kid survives on his own through drought-ridden nuclear winter, traversing the Wasteland on his BMX, scavenging for scraps to trade for a scant supply of water. When his perpetually chipper, pink-haired new best friend Apple is kidnapped by a minion of evil overlord Zeus, the Kid summons the courage of his comic book hero and prepares to deliver turbocharged justice to Zeus, his buzzsaw-handed sidekick Skeletron, and their vicious masked army.

Here’s a making of video from Sundance and it was adapted from this short made by the Roadkill Superstars from Montreal.
