Q&A with director Kanata Wolf

This striking debut from independent production house Gentle Underground Monkeys follows two slackers who work at a midnight bar while also selling marijuana. When they get dangerously close to some unhinged yakuza, they follow wildly divergent fates. Former musician and video game director Kanata Wolf pulls out all the stops for this dazzlingly eclectic film, yet for all its glorious gonzo cult movie trappings, Smokin’ on the Moon also proves to be a deeply moving, bittersweet tale of love, friendship, and perseverance in the face of life’s daunting challenges.
