From the award-winning director of COMIC BOOK CONFIDENTIAL and GRASS comes Tales of the Rat Fink, Ron Mann’s wildly inventive bio about Renaissance man Ed “Big Daddy” Roth, who engineered a shift in mid-twentieth century culture with his customized cars, “monster” T-shirts and America’s alternative rodent - “Rat Fink”. The subject of Tom Wolfe’s essay “The Kandy Kolored Tangerine Flake Streamline Baby”, Ed Roth helped fuel the “Kustom Kulture” / Hot rod movement of the 1960s in Southern California. Hot Rodding grew from crude backyard engineering where performance was the bottom line into a refined artform where aesthetics were equally important. A FILM ABOUT CUSTOM CARS, MONSTER T-SHIRTS, THE ANTI-MICKEY MOUSE AND THE GUY THAT STARTED IT ALL - ED “BIG DADDY” ROTH.
