STF Spring ’13 Pre-Season Special! Q&A with director S. R. Bindler
In HANDS ON A HARD BODY, two dozen small-town Texans compete for a brand-new “Hardbody” pickup truck at a local car dealership. The event is a contest of endurance and sleep-deprivation—whoever can remain standing the longest with one hand on the truck will get to drive it home. Capturing several days of lunacy, laughter, struggle and heartbreak, HANDS ON A HARD BODY is more than a documentary about winning a truck. It is a remarkable study of competition, camaraderie, faith and determination—the ultimate human drama.
“Made on the most modest of means, HANDS ON A HARD BODY is a classic piece of Americana, a down-home documentary that not only produces gales of laughter but also manages, by the end, to come together as a highly unlikely metaphor for the rigors of human existence.” – Variety97 Minutes
