Valley of the Stereos

New Zealand, 1992 (MIFF 1993, Youth Film Festival)

Director: George Port

What happens when two cultures clash? In a sleepy, country hollow, a hippy has his peace and solitude rocked by the invasion of a heavy metaller who would rather die than turn down the volume. The result? A very funny film about cross-cultural disharmony.
