In the smouldering devastation of post nuclear bomb-blasted Melbourne, a periscope protruding from a pile of rubble leads three desperate scavengers to a subterranean fall-out shelter. They muscle their way in, only to discover a raging party in a converted wine cellar, celebrating the Big Meltdown. There’s a band, booze, sex, drugs and a horde of sweat-soaked revellers partying like there is no tomorrow… which for these poor radiation-drenched end-of-the-worlders there isn’t. What choice do the scroungers have but to join in?

SMOKE ‘EM IF YOU GOT ‘EM is a long lost post-apocalyptic classic set slap bang in the middle of Melbourne’s 80’s underground music scene. Starring Nique Needles (DOGS IN SPACE), Rob Howard, Fred Dugina, Danny Lillford (TRAILER PARK BOYS) and featuring the music of BLUE RUIN, the film is a satirical look at the last days of mankind.

If you look carefully, you’ll also spot cameos from NOT QUITE HOLLYWOOD filmmaker Mark Hartley, HOUSEBOAT HORROR producer Ollie Martin and KENNY director Clayton Jacobson.
