The Exponents: Why Does Love? This is a buddy movie, a journey through 80’s New Zealand that is revealing, thought-provoking and surprisingly challenging. In between, it’s a rollicking good story of the rise and fall and rise of one of New Zealand’s most loved and iconic bands. The film revolves around the complex relationship between founding members Dave Gent and Jordan Luck and the roller-coaster ride as their careers skyrocket. What forced them together? What tore them apart? A tough Maori lad and a drunken creative genius and the plan to make it big. The question is – will it work?
