GHOST MAGNET ROACH MOTEL is the third feature film by artist, and filmmaker Shinpei Takeda. 67 minutes Punk Musical documentary follows the off-stage life of 5 artists (2 American musicians, 2 Mexican artists and 1 Japanese filmmaker) of Ghost Magnet Roach Motel, a noise punkformance unit born in Tijuana, Mexico in their process of overcoming their psychological border.
