Air Guitar Nation

Airguitar~Air-Guitar-Nation-Blue-Posters 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.

Rated R. 81 mins. (B) (Three Stars)
