Population: 1

We've been working on showing this for over three years now, and it all finally came together! Rarely seen or screened!

A film by Rene Daalder, who previously made "Massacre at Central High" and was an original collaborator on a Sex Pistols film which later became "The Great Rock-n-Roll Swindle," when Russ Meyer and Roger Ebert were involved early on. Daalder's house in L.A. ended up becoming the Sex Pistols' US "headquarters" for a period of time. It's also been said he was key to the creation of the "My Way" scene in that film.

About Population: 1

When there's only one person left, America becomes a one-man band.

From the depths of a bunker comes one man’s musical send off to the world’s last empire. A twisted history lesson from punk favorite Tomata du Plenty (The Screamers) featuring members of Los Lobos, Vampira, Penelope Houston (The Avengers), the notorious El Duce, Fluxus artist Al Hansen and his Grammy-winning grandson Beck, among many others.

Tomata becomes the sole survivor of a disaster that has wiped out America. Hidden in a bomb shelter below the devastation, Tomata’s character decides to piece together a revisionist history of the United States. Using whatever memorabilia he can get his hands on, he recounts his own warped memoirs as the last citizen of what once was the greatest country on Earth.

Filmed over a period of years, this was initially finished in 1985. We will be featuring a newly created director's cut of the film!

Deliriously cramming 200 years of American mayhem into one punk rock musical, Daalder’s anarchic vision unfolds "as if Frank Zappa and Hieronymus Bosch took angel dust together and created a nightmare.” —Michael Dare, LA Weekly
