Absolutley nuts and borderline genius comedy work from the enigma that is Torn Hawk (and pals). Blowback was the most resonant early document of the TeamFILO positive-disruption technique. It remains a jarring capture of of their methods at a moment of millenial madness in the wake of 9/11. Here is the full length trailer for the first season.
From the original press release: "BLOWBACK: Season One is a seven-part series featuring never-before-seen footage of the September 11th attacks as covered by Dan Fogleberg, (not the singer, the other guy). The film uses comedy to puncture the sanctimony surrounding this seminal event, as well spinning a more obscure yarn: the rise and demise of Slippy Jim Aplomb, the preeminent current-events bard of our time. Our two characters seize on 9/11 in polar ways: for Fogleberg, it becomes a botched opportunity to snag the journalistic limelight, while Slippy grabs the moment to convert the rage of the nation into an anthem; a chant for the bereaved."
The first two episodes of BLOWBACK are available on DVD. The Disc is packed with bonus material, including the music video for Slippy's late career hit, "Weeny Hotel," and the extended cut of the Season One teaser.
