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.
"We've had such a blast sharing this fun, raucous movie with festival audiences," said director Bryan Poyser. "We're thrilled to partner with Tribeca to bring the film to theaters, along with the 'Air Sex' competitions featured in the film, offering audiences an 'expanded' cinematic experience they won't soon forget."
Love & Air Sex is produced by Megan Gilbride, Trace Sheehan, and is a Boomdozer/Barking Magpie production in association with Preferred Content.
