The Coca-Cola Kid

The Coca-Cola Kid

A marketing guru-experienced troubleshooter, employed in the Coca-Cola headquarters in Atlanta, is urgently sent to a remote Australian district, in order to investigate a statistical abnormality: in this desolate piece of land, not a single drop of Coca-Cola is consumed! He is soon to discover the source of this defiance towards the world’s most dominant beverage: local folks prefer a soda pop manufactured and sold exclusively in their district. An oddball comedy that unravels in a most unpredictable way, displaying a cheerful juxtaposition of sensuality, politics and violence – a much celebrated triptych in Makavejev’s work.
