Turbo Kid to Premier at Sundance

Turbo Kid sounds like something from the minds of  filmmaking collective Astron 6. It is a violent, post-apocalyptic, BMX love story with an outcast orphan child taking center stage.

Turbo Kid is a Canadian/New Zealand co-production. The film is intended to be a throwback to the 1980s. The creative team behind the project attacked the picture as if it were a lost classic from yesteryear that is just now being discovered by audiences.

Turbo Kid was directed by RKSS (The filmmaking conglomerate Roadkill Superstar). The group consists of: Anouk Whissell, François Simard and Yoann-Karl Whissell. The project is a co-production between T&A films and EMA films. T&A films was most recently involved with the hilarious horror comedy Housebound and the anthology sequel The ABC’s of Death 2. 

Epic Pictures Group will be representing worldwide sales rights for all territories not including Australia, New Zealand and Canada at the upcoming Sundance Film Festival.

The film will premiere as part of the the Park City at Midnight programming segment of Sundance. We will keep you in the loop as we learn more specifics about the genre film themed Park City at Midnight programming lineup for Sundance and as we learn more about Turbo Kid.
