Russ Forster & Dan Sutherland - So Wrong They’re Right – An 8-Track Loop around the U.S.
Chronicle of a 10,000 mile journey in search of ‘trackers’ – fanatical collectors of 8-Track tapes, the pre-recorded plastic cartridges from the 70s. Over 20 interviews with nostalgia, fix-it tips, fantasies, a.o with David Byrne, Tiny Tim and T-Bone Burnett. More than a film about pop-music nostalgia, it serves as a statement from a population of consumers who are tired of being told what to consume. The film won a prize for best documentary at the Chicago Underground Film Festival.
