Terror-Fi Presents: Monkey Man (First NZ Public Screening)

Be the first in New Zealand to see this action masterpiece from director and star Dev Patel, in his feature film directorial debut.

Getting rave reviews after its recent World Premiere at SXSW, MONKEY MAN has a 91% rating on Rotten Tomatoes!

“Inspired by the legend of Hanuman, an icon embodying strength and courage, Monkey Man stars Patel as Kid, an anonymous young man who ekes out a meager living in an underground fight club where, night after night, wearing a gorilla mask, he is beaten bloody by more popular fighters for cash. After years of suppressed rage, Kid discovers a way to infiltrate the enclave of the city’s sinister elite. As his childhood trauma boils over, his mysteriously scarred hands unleash an explosive campaign of retribution to settle the score with the men who took everything from him.”
