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. It is the ultimate human drama. Available for the first time in ten years, this new edition of Hands On a Hardbody has been digitally re-mastered from the original Hi8 analog tapes. Hands On a Hardbody continues to be a cult hit a decade after its initial release. It won AFIʼs Best Documentary Award, numerous film festival and critics' honors and was a smash hit to sold-out audiences from coast to coast during its theatrical run.
