So Wrong They're Right
by Russ Forster

So Wrong They're Right chronicles a 10,000 mile journey around the US in search of "trackers"—fanatical collectors of 8-Track tapes, those funky clunky pre-recorded plastic cartridges from the '70s. Russ Forster and Dan Sutherland capture over 20 interviews, brimming with reminiscences, rants, political diatribes, fantasies, fix-it tips, sales pitches, and everything else that defines the skeptical yet inquisitive mind of the 8-Track enthusiast. More than a film about pop-music nostalgia, it serves as a statement of outrage from a population of consumers who are tired of being told what to consume.

Selected Press Quotes

"A deadpan tribute to people who refuse to consider the past as passed." —Wired Magazine

"A forum to celebrate 8-track culture: the candy-colored Panasonic players, the KACHUNK sound of putting the tape into the player, hunting down a treasured copy of the Sex Pistols' Never Mind the Bollocks..." —Boston Herald
