Electric Boogaloo: The Wild, Untold Story of Cannon Films

Electric Boogaloo is a documentary about Israeli filmmakers Menahem Golan and Yoram Globus who, having produced the biggest Israeli box office hit ever, took the leap into the big pool of Hollywood (picking up a small company called Cannon films along the way) to become an international empire. The two cousins professed a love of movies, but it was energetic and shameless salesmanship that kept the company afloat until the momentum  and the money  eventually ran out.
