After tearing up the festival circuit for the past two years, we are excited to present We Are The Mods for its Arizona Premiere screening.
Sadie's art is her photography. Nico's art is her life. Together they explore Britain's 60's mod culture of music, fashion, drugs and vintage scooters in contemporary Los Angeles. Sadie observes the world through the lens of her 35 mm camera, but everything changes when she meets Nico, the new "mod" girl who was born with Milroy's disease that causes her to have abnormal swelling in her foot. Nico doesn't hide her disability, in fact she loves the spotlight. Sadie is drawn into Nico's thrilling world of aesthetics where Sadie learns about herself and who she really is.
