Shihad: Beautiful Machine

Jon Toogood, Karl Kippenberger, Phil Knight, Tom Larkin

Movie propaganda

For over 20 years, Shihad has defined New Zealand rock music. From their roots in Wellington’s furious 90s punk metal scene, to the wild Berlin days, the tragic overdose of their manager, the international explosion of The General Electric, and the infamous American name-change, Shihad: Beautiful Machine asks – what went wrong? More than a documentary, this is an all-access pass to an extraordinary rock saga, charting a legendary band’s fight with fame, fortune, the industry, and finally – itself.
