The Electrifiers

The band “The Electrifiers” won the 1984 Best New Artist Award for their smash
hit which no one remembers and has been stuck in traffic on the fast track to
international stardom ever since. 30 years later, the band members, continue to drag
themselves between gigs at nursing houses and cheap B&B'S. The lead singer,
Mickey Tevel, a once charismatic showman, is still leading the life of a 20-year-old
rocker: dreaming of making it big while living hand to mouth out of the band's van,
conveniently parked in his ex-wife's garage. Mickey won’t stop messing up and
letting all his band members down, as well as his teenage daughter, but just as

everyone is about to become completely fed up with him, a surprising, once-in-a-
lifetime opportunity presents itself, which could deliver the band’s long awaited

comeback, and propel them straight to the top.

Director Statement

The Electrifiers is a coming of age comedy centered on a 60-year-old teenager.
Mickey Tevel, the Electrifiers’ lead singer, keeps dreaming and believing he could
take America by storm with his music. He hasn’t picked up on the rather unsubtle
hints life has dropped him over the past 40 years. Like every adolescent, he thinks no
one gets him and that one day he’s gonna show everyone. The ever-growing distance
between Mickey and his fantasy render him a tragic-comic character. But when the
geographical distance between Mickey and his fantasy is diminished, the distance
between reality and dream becomes ever so clear, and forces Mickey to finally grow
up. Mickey’s disillusionment will eventually enable him, for the first time in his life,
to acknowledge the love of the people truly close to him; yet expect his journey there
to be very amusing...
