Rainer Sarnet’s new feature film “The Invisible Fight” screening as part of SXSW Sydney and Monster Fest Melbourne

“The Invisible Fight” is premiering in Australia next week in Sydney & Mebourne.

Zen meets zany with a 70s kung fu flair, laughs aplenty and a sonic assault of Black Sabbath in filmmaker Rainer Sarnet’s funkadelic film about an orthodox Russian, on a warrior’s journey to become a martial arts master.

USSR-China border, 1973. Rafael, is in the army on guard duty when the border falls under attack from flying Chinese kung fu warriors. Utterly fascinated by the long-haired Chinese hippie black-clad kung fu aces flying around blasting forbidden Black Sabbath music from their portable radio Rafael gets struck by a revelation; he too wants to become a kung fu warrior. Faith leads Rafael to an Orthodox monastery where the black-clad monks do their training but his road to achieving the almighty power of humility required is long, winding and full of kick-ass adventures.
