Winter 1997. Amarillo, Texas. Brian Deneke is notorious for his green Mohawk and his passion for punk rock. His radical appearance provokes social intolerance in the community – particular on the part of Cody Cates, a high school jock who has joined up with a group known as the “White Hatters”. An emotionally unsettling nightmare vision of 1990s America, more relevant than ever.

“BOMB CITY will keep you in its grasp during every moment leading to its climactic violence. And it won’t let go until the closing credits roll.” (Variety, Joe Leydon)

“It’s a Texas culture war movie, bringing to screen the brief life of Brian Deneke, the Amarillo punk rocker and skater killed in 1997 at the age of 19 during a confrontation between punks and jocks that tore the city apart.” (Houston Chronicle, Cary Darling)
