TWISTED: A BALLOONAMENTARY
WGBH Boston Video will premiere a quirky new documentary about the lives of professional balloon twisters on DVD June 3, 2008.
From competitive balloon conventions to everyday life, TWISTED: A BALLOONAMENTARY follows a core group of eight people whose lives have been forever changed by the art of balloon twisting. This wildly hilarious film, created by Sara Taksler and Naomi Greenfield, also includes breathtaking and over-the-top balloon sculptures as well as an animated segment about the history of balloon twisting narrated by THE DAILY SHOW host Jon Stewart.
A flying octopus. A Trojan horse. Two 100-foot-tall soccer players. All made out of balloons. These are just some of the masterful creations you will see as TWISTED: A BALLOONAMENTARY takes you into the heart of Twist and Shout, one of the world's premier balloon twisting conventions.
One young woman learns to twist so she can get out of the trailer park and go to medical school. Another character discovers the gospel with balloons and twists to find salvation and move away from a life of crime. Exploring how the lives of eight balloon twisters are dramatically changed by a little piece of latex, this hilarious and heartwarming film is about passion, salvation, love, death, race, religion, and a whole lot of balloons.

--Audio commentary by filmmakers Sara Taksler and Naomi Greenfield
--A Q&A session with the filmmakers at the TWISTED World Premiere
