Mandy is set in the primal wilderness of 1983 where Red Miller, a broken and haunted man, hunts an unhinged religious sect who slaughtered the love of his life.
Born in the ’70s to a Greek movie director and a Swedish experimental artist, Panos Cosmatos spent his early years traveling around the globe, including living in Mexico for a year in 1980. Exposure to the global interpretations of American pop culture had a profound effect on his creative life. Eventually landing in the isolated suburbs of Vancouver, Canada, Cosmatos obsessed over the minutiae of heavy metal, fantasy art, science fiction, and horror films. He still does.
