Eight Vietnam veterans decide to start a pirate TV station on board an airplane, and broadcast free programs that begin to enthrall America. A decade later, they try to thwart a candidate’s campaign run for the White House…

Commended at the 1987 Avoriaz Festival, The American Way is a grotesque anarchist farce released during the Reagan era, and the first feature film directed by Maurice Phillips (Another You, Enid Is Sleeping). Along with a rock’n’roll soundtrack, the film features Michael J. Pollard (seen with Rob Zombie), Eugene Lipinski (Rollerball) and an impressive Dennis Hopper.

Friday 8 September 2017 - 21:30 - Showroom 300 - Screening presented by Marc Caro and Jean-Pierre Jeunet
