Synopsis

Lupe is a Puertorican-American living in late 1970’s New York City. Her handwritten journal guides us through her experiences in 1978 as she meets Debbie, another runaway kid, in the cell of a juvenile detention centre. Debbie introduces Lupe to the punk scene of the Bowery and exposes her to the secret worlds coexisting in the Lower East Side in the late 1970’s.
Helped by legendary musician Elda Stiletto, they form a punk band while escaping the grip of the Satan Sinners gang, chasing after them for stealing a member’s bike.

Directors’ Statement

This coming of age drama explores the theme of identity through the use of animation and immersive environments in VR. We wanted to explore the underbelly of the Lower East Side scene, the dangers that can turn a girl into a woman. Battlescar is the fruit of years of thinking about experimenting new ways of storytelling.
