Bartertown Imperial Guard Vexillums & Pigs = Power, Mad Max Beyond Thunderdome 1985

Bartertown Imperial Guard with Vexillum

Mad Max Beyond Thunderdome is a part of the epic post apocalyptic series about the future of humanity after a nuclear war.

The film does not explain who was wrong, right or place blame - rather it illustrates a state of culture that changes to into techno wild-west mash up.

Pigs = Power Vexillum

The key resource of Bartertown is methane - which is extracted from pig manure. As it is now and in this imaginary future, allocation of energy resources are powerful aspects of power and politics.
