Available June 29th on DVD from New Video, Bass Ackwards is an Official Selection of the 2010 Sundance Fil Festival from th Flatiron Film Company.
From executive producer Mark Duplass, Bass Ackwards is a captivating and consummately human film that reminds us that whatever we think the road is about, the trip is probably about something else. When humble Linas (Linas Phillips), kicked off of his friend’s couch and spurned by his lover, finds a forgotten van on a llama farm outside Seattle, he begins lurching east with nothing to lose. Slowly, the road eases him out of his relentless longing and into the moment. As his encounters with enigmatic characters take on subtly transcendent qualities, his shame and discomfort at being alone gradually give way to self-acceptance and connection. The dented, off-kilter vehicle, which valiantly, amazingly endures the journey, becomes a colorful metaphor for the human condition- our tenacity and hopefulness always tinged with imperfection. This utterly original, lyrical and visually exciting adventure has such a light tough that it quietly sneaks up and tugs you into an overpowering appreciation of being human
