In association with La Jolla Playhouse’s world premiere musical Hands on a Hardbody, ArtPower! Film and La Jolla Playhouse present a screening of the Documentary "Hands on a Hard Body."
Directed by S.R. Bindler, "Hands on a Hard Body" follows twenty-four contestants who compete in an endurance/sleep deprivation contest in order to win a brand new Nissan Hardbody truck. The last person to remain standing with his or her hand on the truck wins. An absurd marketing gimmick at first glance, the contest proves to be much more.
Stay for the post-film Q & A with filmmaker Robb Bindler and ArtPower! Film Curator Rebecca Webb.
S.R. Bindler is a director who finds humor, levity, and poignancy in everyday subjects. His eye for natural detail and his comedic instincts elevate his commercial work, and were the cornerstones of his critically lauded film debut, "Hands on a Hard Body." The documentary feature was a hit around the country and won the AFI Audience Award for Best Documentary.
A native of Longview, Texas, Robb attended New York University Film School. He has worked with the top agencies in advertising, including Weiden & Kennedy, BBDO, DDB, Grey, McCann, Arnold, and TBWA/Chiat Day. His work has won ADDYs, Andys, and was honored by the AICP.
