77 BOADRUM, directed by Jun Kawaguchi, documents the now-legendary 7/7/07 performance by the mega-iconic Japanese band The Boredoms with 77 guest drummers. Expect big, loud, explosive energy!

There will be appearances by the Director Kawaguchi for both screenings. The 7:00 screening will feature a Q&A session afterward, and he will introduce the 9:15 airing.

New York - Tokyo thanks Boredoms, Chris Habib, Hisham Bharoocha, VICE, and all others to make this premiere happen.

Jun Kawaguchi, a passionate independent director has worked on promotional music videos and documentaries since 2000. He co-founded KATHOMANDU TRIO PRODUCTION, and currently manages the company. 77BOADRUM is his first theatrical release feature film.

NYT: What attracted you to this project in particular?
JK: 77 drums, New York, and Boredoms made me be sure that something amazing would happen! I wanted to show this "once in a lifetime" event to everyone who could not be there. And I wanted to show everyone how the Boredoms is the most special group in the world!
