SYNOPSIS

Mad Max 2: The Road Warrior will screen from an archival 35mm print.

Filmed in the desolate deserts of Australia as the perfect backdrop to the ultimate post apocalyptic road film, Mad Max 2: The Road Warrior takes place in a crumbled world where “the cities have exploded." A cool drifter comes to the aid of a community of settlers ravaged by bandits, as they battle for gasoline and survival in epic, wildly choreographed chase scenes complete with punk-rock-biker style and relentless action in this highly visionary work—somewhat eclipsing the preceding installment which had not been widely released in the US—and setting the stage for a whole new world of comic-book dystopian films to come.'
