The Exponents are a rite of passage for New Zealand music scenesters, and even for teenagers today. Their songs encapsulated an 80’s music movement in New Zealand that was so special, their songs still cherished throughout the country. Anthems like Victoria, I’ll Say Goodbye, Who Loves Who The Most Whatever Happened To Tracey, and of course Why Does Love Do This To Me?
The story of iconic Kiwi band The Exponents is one filled with mayhem, rock and roll, immense creativity and also the formation of a friendship and the strain that fame puts on the people around you. Jordan Luck and Dave Gent are the central focus of the film, their relationship driving the rise, the fall and the eventual resurgence of the band. Feature-length tele feature WHY DOES LOVE? is a classic band movie, a compelling coming of age story and a rollicking good time all at once.
