Tribeca Film has announced that it will be releasing Bryan Poyser’s Love & Air Sex (f/k/a The Bounceback) this February with a day-and-date VOD and Theatrical release that will begin on demand February 4th and in theaters beginning February 7th. The film, which world premiered at the 2013 SXSW Film Festival, will also launch a 10-City “Air Sex” Road Show, featuring in-person appearances by filmmakers and cast, live “Air Sex” competitions, and shows by Austin bands featured in the film’s soundtrack.
In Love & Air Sex, when brokenhearted Stan (Michael Stahl-David, Cloverfield) flies to Austin for the weekend in hopes of “accidentally” running into his ex-girlfriend Cathy (Ashley Bell, The Last Exorcism I & II), he arrives to find their best friends Jeff (Zach Cregger, “The Whitest Kids U Know”) and Kara (Sara Paxton, The Innkeepers) in the middle of their own vicious breakup. Before too long, battle lines are drawn – and with the Air Sex World Championships in town, anything can go down.
What is Air Sex? It’s Air Guitar meets karaoke meets mime meets perversion. Contestants get on stage and act out a wild sexual scenario to a song of their choosing, completely by yourself and (usually) completely clothed. Imported from Japan by Tim League and Henri Mazza at the Alamo Drafthouse Theaters, it’s since become a national phenomenon. It’s also a major plot point in Love & Air Sex, and the routines the characters come up with have to be seen to be believed.
