FEATURES

 

Hands On A Hardbody  

This film is a phenomenon. One of my favorite documentaries of all time.
— Quentin Tarantino

FIRST 9 MINUTES OF MOVIE

In S.R. Bindler’s 1997 cult classic, Hands On a Hardbody, 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 Hardbody is more than a documentary about winning a truck. It is a remarkable study of competition, camaraderie, faith and determination—the ultimate human drama.

The Mancha Blanca

It’s like taking ayahuasca and dreaming about an Amazonian shaman having a nightmare about a sick and dying world.
— the filmmakers

The Mancha Blanca is an experimental film about a Peruvian shaman using Ayahuasca to solve a worldwide disease called White Spot (mancha blanca). 

Surfer, Dude

You never know what is going to happen next.
— Luis Black

4 SHORT SCENES FROM MOVIE

Luis Black ~ Film Critic
Surfer, Dude is of my favorite kinds of film; it's continually surprising without resorting to cheap melodrama to resolve actions or instigate the climax. Instead, these films march to their own beats, so that you never know what is going to happen next. The very best of them have you rethinking the protagonists and what they are up to throughout the film. Until the end, you are uncertain as to how they perceive their worlds, exactly who they are, and what drives them.

DARTH_HLYWD_BLVD.jpg

Robb Bindler is a director who finds the absurd and poignant in the seemingly mundane. His eye for natural detail and his comedic instincts elevate his commercial work, and were the cornerstones of his critically lauded film debut, Hands on a Hardbody. The documentary feature, which recorded an endurance contest in Texas that offered a Nissan Hardbody Truck as the prize, was a festival hit around the country, won the AFI Audience Award for Best Documentary, adapted by Robert Altman for the screen and Pulitzer Prize winning Doug Write for the stage ( with a score from Amanda Green and Phish's Trey Anastasio).

The film has also been taught for over a decade in film schools as a model for DIY documentary-filmmaking. 

A native of Longview, Texas, Robb graduated New York University's Tisch School of the Arts' Film program. He has worked with top advertising agencies including Wieden & Kennedy, BBDO, DDB, Grey, McCann, Arnold, and TBWA/Chiat Day; and with iconic brands: Visa, Coke, Nokia, NFL, MLB.
