Air Guitar Nation
Put aside all of your preconceptions of air guitar as a hobby of shamelessly untalented wanna-be guitar players, and step into the world of competitive air guitar. Alexandra Lipsitz’s patient documentary follows air guitar masters David "C-Diddy" Jung and Dan "Bjorn Turoque" Crane from America’s first nationwide air guitar championship to Finland for the international championships. The performance art of air guitar takes on a rarefied identity as an incorruptible force that cannot be merchandised because "it doesn’t exist." Perhaps air guitar is an activity that Sartre would have embraced.
